Night owl chat – Hall & Oates

Today has been a GOOD day, so time for some music.

When I think of Hall & Oates, I think of summers hanging out in the park, and nights spent watching MTV. So, a little blue-eyed Philly soul with the latest members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Night owl chat – That famous Obot, Michael McDonald (and a poem)

Earlier today I expressed my, um, less than fond regards for noted musician Michael McDonald. I was then made aware that Mr. McDonald is a fierce Obot, who has taken fan displeasure in speaking out for Pres. Obama. So, in expiation, some of Mr. McDonald’s oeuvre. BUT, only with the Doobie Brothers; I can go a lifetime without listening to “Sweet Freedom” again.

night owl chat – Some people are more equal than others

“There are two Americas. In one, bankers get golden parachutes, insider traders return to society as well-paid consultants, and influence is for sale. In the other, opportunity is scarce and forgiveness scarcer, jail awaits those caught possessing recreational drugs, and cries for help are ignored. Society preaches forgiveness for the rich and retribution for the poor. Entrenched inequality and its companion, poverty, are the dark side of the American dream for a citizenry united by name, but not by rules.”

From “Festival of Dangerous Ideas”, the genius writer of “The Wire” and “Homicide: Life on the Streets”, David Simon.

Take the time to listen, and learn. This is your night owl chat.
