B and R will be in the house very soon. Yay! Drive safe, guys. Bring your hippy ass whuppin' shoes (thanks, Alan, for that plan).

Many links today and very little context. But they're all good links.

Kentucky still has some pretty silly laws on the books. This is my favorite part of that story:

Another state law, for example, stated that "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club." The law was later amended with: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to female horses."

Isn't that beautiful in a wretched way?

Hank Stuever, in the tradition of Hank Stuever, has a killer column about Prince's "Darling Nicki" in today's Wash Post, which prompted Mr. Butner to do a song lyric (sorta, kinda) bio in the short-lived tradition started by Christopher to define himself via redacted John Mellencamp lyrics.

Someone at work read me part of a story where Elizabeth Taylor said the Glove Monster is innocent. Right. Let me just place my preferred vigilante justice systems in order and see where "Liz Taylor Says" comes up...

And oops, all the other stories I had were more depressing chronicles of the way in which our government has ceased tiptoeing around the edges of our civil liberties and started lacing up the old jackboots.

It's enough to send a girl to bed early. Night.

earworm: "Hard Drive," Evan Dando (Baby, I'm Bored)
