So good to see Armatrading back on the music scene here in the US after a long absence. Bienvenue, Joan!
Now if we can get Sade to do the same, my plate of music will be full.

Yes, my bad! The article doesn't make reference to a Pit Bull. So Pit Bullism is mine! It says, "...65-pound mixed breed dog..."

All the references to institutions of higher learning dealing in agroecological methods, yet not one mention to efforts coming from our neighbor to the immediate north, affectionately known as Cal Poly!

As the world turns! Today, the headline reads that a pit bull gets shot by law enforcement -- and not in IV but upscale Montecito. Umbriago! Now everybody's tryin' to get into da act, as Durante would say.

Sweet memories here from the 70s. Stealy Dan was a major hit with me. It's interesting how many of these groups are hanging in there. I suspect Cobain would still be a headliner had he not decided to leave us so soon.
As to Mr. Donelan's comment on SB, I couldn't agree more. SB in its own way is idyllic (I'm not on board with the idea of commuter trains). He's very lucky.
The only other place on earth high on my list is McMinneville, Oregon. Its annual Draggin' the Gut is a must, for sure! The feel of the city is akin to something out of the 40s complete with Main Street.

Well, history is indeed interesting. You learn something new about it everyday.
For example, I've just learned something new about an "Afro-Mexican folk-rock." We don't normally hear of such a cultural linkage between Afro and Mexican.
We do historically associate Afro with Cuban, e.g., Perez Prado, Mambo, and so forth. Not so with Mexican cultural tradition. The article, then, might have done justice to readers as to the origin of this folk-rock with the unusual title.
On ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! and Las Cafeteras

This is such a depressing topic! So much so that I wonder whether this malaise ever reached the confines of Boys Town of Nebraska, the subject of many a fond movie?
The Bowery Boys were to tough for that kind of nonsense! Why Leo Gorcey of Toidy Toid Street would knock somebody's block off.
On High School Coach Pleads No Contest to Sex with Minor

"Hale is representing a single plaintiff in the civil complaint, a former member of the Carpinteria Community Church who says youth minister Louis Bristol preyed on her during religious retreats and when he counseled her about her parents’ divorce."
The plaintiff seems to be describing a felony, alleging she was "preyed on during religious retreats..." A felony is in our system of justice a criminal matter in which one seeks justice!
So can someone tell me why this matter, which is criminal, if true, comes under a different code of procedure altogether, a civil matter?

I had serious questions about Bush's ranking until I read DD's comment. Food for thought.
On What Republican presidential candidate are you voting for?

What? "He also apologized to his mother, Shelya Rosenbaum — who is Jewish and of African-American descent — for his beliefs."
Funny, (not ha-ha) I don't see any hint here of "mixture." Even my reading glasses are helping! Needless to say, this matter is complex, to say the least.
