  1. Worth getting "A Hard Day's Night" and "Beatles For Sale" in stereo finally. They were mono when the original CD's were released because George Martin insisted they never did stereo mixes of those albums and the only stereo versions had all vocals on one track and all instruments on the other. That was wrong as anyone who had the albums in stereo knew. Martin a few later admitted his surprise and mistake to discover true mixed for stereo versions existed saying he forgot. I forgive the guy his senior moment but craved for these done right (the American album versions CDs out a few years ago were close).

    And when you get to "Hey Jude" on "Past Masters" crank it up and be prepared to be amazed. It is probably the best improved track. The drums and bass on it jump out giving it more power than ever.

  2. This guys performed 60,000 abortions...he did over 250 late term abortion in 2003 alone.

    At 250 per year it would take him 240 years to do 60,000.

    Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, so if Dr. Tiller's abortions were all legal, they would have been performed in the last 36 years. Sixty thousand divided by 36 is about 1,667 per year. If Dr. Tiller took 4 weeks of vacation, sick leave, or other non-working days each year, that means he performed about 35 abortions a week, or about one an hour (assuming a 9-to-5 day with an hour off for lunch).

    Performing an abortion an hour every working day for 36 years is a pace that would have taxed Lou Gehrig. I don't believe it happened.

  3. Google is your friend.

    Plenty of other sites, some less politcal if you are so inclined, show 4 to 5 trillion. Nearly doubling the national debt. He raised the national debt almost as much all the previous presidents combined.

    Where was the outrage from the right? That's a legitimate question. Its all about stirring up people when they want their attention and down playing it when they don't.

  4. Not mentioned:

    Donnie Iris - King Cool

    Following have asterisks

    *Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (2nd with Buckingham Nicks line up)

    *CSNY - Deja Vu (if you consider CSN and CSNY essentially the same entity)

    *Warren Zevon - Warren Zevon (if you count "Wanted Dead or Alive")

    *Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy (if you don't)

  5. 9/11 conspiracy theories don't hold up well if you investigate the claims the theorists make.

    I do think these bunglers in the Bush crime family had the warnings thrown in their noses before hand and either were too inept to make the connections or ignored them willfully.

    Its beyond the realm of logic to think these clowns were capable of masterminding and executing such a complicated undertaking given their track record.

    A lot of too cool for the room no one knows picks. If we're including lesser known songs, how can this list not have any Jackson Browne - "Late for the Sky", "Sky Blue and Black"? And where is "All By Myself"?

    Note this sentence though...

    5 The Righteous Brothers: "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," single (Philles, 1964) "You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips": it's got to be the second greatest opening line of any breakup song ever. (The greatest is surely from Raspberries’ ballad "Starting Over": "I used to be so f***ing optimistic til you said goodbye".)

  7. "Backstreets"

    The piano signature and such great lyrics.

    From the opening line..

    "One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends."

    ... to the closing...

    "And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest

    Stranded in the park and forced to confess

    To hiding on the backstreets"

    Close second "Promised Land".

  8. Hahahahaha! How about tens of thousands of dollars of grant money that Obama obtained, ending up in the pocket of his campaign manager. My God if this was McCain it would be the lead story...over the economy.

    Wait... like McCain's campaign manager being paid by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?
  9. "Madigan's office has notified Obama's presidential campaign of the probe, which was launched this week. But Obama's actions in awarding the money are not a focus of the investigation, Smith said."

  10. After struggling to stand up for some months, Spock, my 14 year old border collie's legs could no longer support him at all. Two days ago, he stopped eating. Yesterday he drank a lot of water but stopped urinating. This morning I faced the hard truth and took him to the vet where I stood by him as his suffering ended. I miss him.
