Some culture for the unwashed, semi-washed and fully-showered and/or bathed

For those of us who – heaven forbid! – read, might I recommend for a final summer read Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals ? Speaking as a former history major, I can say with a modicum of authority that it is one of the better monographs on the political machinations and philosophical debate leading to Lincoln’s election as President. And it leaves one wondering how close things came – read and you’ll see. It’s good history and good literature.

And while I’ve gotten my Steely Dan fix for the week, I still have a spot in my black, shrivelled heart for Paris Combo. Here’s a dose for those of you wishing they were sitting in a Left Bank cafe . . .

Hopefully I’ll work up to my bitter, climactic screed on why no  candidate this year is even marginally worthy of attention as the right person at the right time to start this country turning to something better some day.

  1. Let’s see, you posted a video of a chanteuse and then followed up with the promise of a possible tirade on American politics. Uh oh! Somebody is going to accuse you of being anti American lol

    BTW, good stuff. I really enjoyed listening to that and eating my turkey bacon. More, please.
