"Going to Georgia" - Mountain Goats
What with seeing a sign to Macon on my way to the airport today and all of the madness about guns, this song naturally came to mind. Well worth listening to the monologue that John Darnielle gives -- he is a hilarious story teller -- as to what inspired the song.
Anyway, stuck in Charlotte, but now my flight is less late than previously predicted. These are the small victories of today's air travel.
- I recommend this piece by Duncan Black in USA Today -- I know -- on the failure of the 401(k) experiment. It makes me think Atrios should stretch out and write from time to time. The guy's good.
- All we need is more good guys with guns folks. What could go wrong? The panicky shooting of innocent newspaper deliverers by the cops pretty much shoots that argument in the head, as it were.
Alright, make your own fun. I'll be in NYC in a couple of hours.
