Thanks for the timely reminder that not everything is fake on this planet.
A pleasant healthy weekend to you too.

Those Smith-AC/DC covers were horrid, and not remotely music. Sometimes, though, a white guy actually does a classy, respectful cover, like this Ben Sollee cover of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come". Sollee respectfully acknowledges the apparent absurdity of a white hipster covering a song written during the Civil Rights movement by a black guy who was shot and killed before the song's release.

I don't know what Cooke would think of this cover, but it is at least good music.

Dave, Can't you get the healthy stuff you need over at the non-profit East-End Co-op? There you can shop with aging hippies rather than the BMW crowd and still pay nearly $3 for a small bunch of organic kale...

For an example of the callous disregard with which the yuppies hold towards the blue-collar workers who clean their offices and serve their restaurant meals, look no further than the controversy over whether to hold the New York Marathon.

Talk about feeling disgusted!!
