I know it’s well past daybreak in the East (it’s still dark-thirty here in California), but we wanted to give some oxygen to the new ebook.

In any event, it’s time to rock and roll, so here’s that great 1960s tribute to Upward Mobility, the Animals’ “We Got To Get Our Of This Place.”

    Good morning Ed.

    Take two cups of coffee, one big smile, one little aspirin, and then go for it. We await today's wit; hopefully it will include lots of snark relating to the Vulture/Voucher candidates.

    Of note from elsewhere earlier today:

    My favorite They'd Never Be Able To Do That Today videos. blowed up models all over the place. Practically a Butcher Cover. Almost as good as their It's My Life performance with live women's heads mounted on the walls.
