America The Current Situation

Nothing says “FREEDOM” like forced patriotism and mandatory prayer

Yup, this really happened, and Penwell Knights Raceway in Odessa, Texas, does have a “stand for the anthem and prayer” policy.

It Happened to Me

Contrary to rumor, I was NOT doing this in Salt Lake City…

…instead, I was at the Python conference for the past couple of days. But it might have been fun to make a wager like the one pictured above!

America The Current Situation

“America is a Gun,” by Brian Bilston

England is a cup of tea.
France, a wheel of ripened brie.
Greece, a short, squat olive tree.
America is a gun.

Brazil is football on the sand.
Argentina, Maradona’s hand.
Germany, an oompah band.
America is a gun.

Holland is a wooden shoe.
Hungary, a goulash stew.
Australia, a kangaroo.
America is a gun.

Japan is a thermal spring.
Scotland is a highland fling.
Oh, better to be anything
than America as a gun.

“Margaritaville” is now in the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry!

I’ve been saying it for decades and finally Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden agrees with me. On Wednesday, she included Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville as one of 25 recordings to be listed as “audio treasures worthy of preservation for all time based on their cultural, historical or aesthetic importance in the nation’s recorded sound heritage.”

As you might have guessed, the band I play with — The Tropical Sons — play Margaritaville, and we’ll definitely be including it in tomorrow’s sets in Downtown Clearwater.
