Yup, couldn't agree more.

That mayor and the idiot running the police should all be physically run out of town...

Well, in a sane nation...

And it wouldn't be "Boobs on the ground". I'm pretty sure the term would be "Pair in the air". ;D

I've never liked The Who. Unlike other classic artists I don't like (Hendrix, Dylan, Young, Joplin, Stones, Clapton, etc, etc, etc), I don't even appreciate The Who's contribution to music. Most of those other artists I can look at objectively and say that while I don't personally enjoy listening to them, I understand why their contribution was important. I can't say that about The Who. I don't get it.

I fully realize that that is my own problem, and that I am in the minority for my age group. But I can't get what I don't get.

The only Janis Joplin I like is her early stuff with Big Brother and the Holding Company. Now that I think about it, all of those you listed were good in their early years. Then went to crap.

California’s narrow Obamacare networks have many Obamacare customers experiencing buyer’s remorse over health care plans that are turning out to include far fewer doctors than they were led to believe, reports the Los Angeles Times.

“Where was the state in protecting people from these false promises?” California Obamacare customer Heidi Shurtleff, 53, told the Times. “I’m not getting what I paid for.”

President Barack Obama infamously promised Americans, “If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor.”

But so-called “narrow networks” are a key component of Obamacare designed to limit doctor choice in an effort to drive down costs. A Times analysis found that insurers in California, which has the nation’s largest number of Obamacare customers, have no intention of expanding the number of doctors available to plan holders.

"But I can't get what I don't get."

Sounds like something Donald (known & unknown unknowns) Rumsfield would say  ;)

To me, The Who were a great band to have around in college: Bowie, The Stones, Zeppelin, The Who (and later The Cars, Elvis Costello, early Tom Petty, The Jam, etc.) - whether it was booming over the frat-house stereo or in a dance club. Daltrey's "Won't Get Fooled Again" scream was/is a classic.

In Be Lucky, I'm hearing a lot of throwback (Substitute, Won't Get Fooled Again, My Wife, Pure & Easy - even some of Townsend's "Gonna' Get Ya'") - so for me it's a trip down memory lane.

Yeah, keep using SWAT teams for stuff like this.  Keep widening that gulf with the citizenry.  Keep burning up whatever trace of goodwill and benefit of doubt the citizenry might have had for the police.

SWAT teams were developed for very special purposes....high risk situations where there are hostages and/or heavily armed criminals.  Now they're being used for everything.  Are we really to believe they couldn't have a regular uniformed officer simply knock on the door?  What's next, SWAT teams serving civil papers?  I'm also sick of these judges who just rubber stamp all this.  A search warrant is supposed to describe very specifically the nature of the search.  In this case it should be nothing more than computers.  They should not have the authority to then go on a general fishing expedition throughout the house.

When you outfit every county mounty with military weaponry, you get the whole "hammer looking for a nail" phenomenon.

I'm surprised they identified the pilot.  Usually those identities are kept secret for operational security and the personal safety of the pilot.

It's an obama world now, unfortunately.

Not bad.  Better than anything on their last CD.

Pete Townshend is another of those that for whatever the reason, just lost his muse, from about Iron Man on.  Nothing he's done has been all that good.  This song is above the average, for the last 25 years.
