Political science: Ian Hunter's analysis

Nothin' matters anymore
The rich get rich and the poor get sorer
You took our loyalty and you tore it to shreds
We're all at the mercy of shrunken heads

The photo in your next post is bone-chillingly terrifying. I think I recognize that beast - sorry if he's paying a visit.

Thanks for the well-wishes. The fall semesters usually are bad.

On the plus side, if that last Ian Hunter I sent you guys is a 9.5 out of 10, the one I'm listening to now, Shrunken Heads, is a ten. I've been through it three times now. It's a perfect album. Copy in the mail next week.

Bought my tickets today; not sure who's going to ride shotgun. I see the show has two warmup acts, and it's a Saturday, so I hope dinner is on the agenda.

A perfect album - I'm sure that's not a label you slap on lightly. I can't wait to hear it! I've still got to get our tix, and absolutely, dinner is officially on the agenda. (As opposed to on the veranda)
