How about more grammar?

American Politics Bullshit

"Well, you see, Johnny, we have a two-party system."
"Well what's that?"
"Well, that's where you have one party write legislation, and the other party tries to sabotage it."
"That sounds like a game."
"Well, I guess it is a kind of game."
"But what if there's something really bad gonna happen, like an asteroid's gonna hit us or something?"
"Well, then one party will try to write legislation to save the planet, and the other will try to sabotage it."
"But if we get hit by an asteroid, we could die."
"Yes, but if they pass legislation that keeps us from getting hit by the asteroid, then the other party will lose."
"How come?"
"Well, that's just how it is, Johnny."
"I don't get it."

Glitter and Doom Live

Did you know that Waits has released a live album from his Glitter and Doom tour? There's nothing from St. Louis on there - THAT WAS SUCH AN AWESOME CONCERT! - but Get Behind the Mule is on there, and the live version of that alone is worth the price of the album, I think.

Remember when we all sang Innocent When You Dream during the encore? That was awesome.
