Happy Columbus Day, especially to our Italian brothers and sisters! This being a federal holiday (and one that has always been celebrated a lot more thoroughly in Washington than in many locales), I will follow a somewhat more relaxed schedule today, which will also enable me to recover from the experience of watching the Braves on Friday and my Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday.
Anyway, here’s a seasonal song to kick things off today: rare video of The Kinks performing their great tribute to the drab ambitions of the British petit bourgeoisie, “Autumn Almanac.”
