    Anyone else tired of 20% of their RSS feed being music videos?

    I'm grateful that Ed Kilgore marks them as such - saves me the trouble of opening the link on my mobile reader.

    I'm culturally broad minded. I listen to both kinds of music: Mozart, and Haydn. But I'm honest enough to admit that sime, probably most people don't share my tastes. Why do most blog authors not get this?

    Fitting song, Ed. I've always liked Lena Horne even if she was a little, a very little, before my time.
