Just finished the new Richard Russo novel, "Anybody's Fool". Sequel to "Nobody's Fool" (movie starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Jessica Tandy, Melanie Griffith), by the author of Pulitzer Prize winner "Empire Falls". Must read for his fans.

Stx, I get the same feeling about so-called "country" music today. Here's a modern blues guy who writes smart lyrics to go with catchy blues hooks, Robert Cray. You're right about knowing where to look.

The coach apparently tried to get some of his players to follow him to his new job. I'd be surprised if this didn't happen fairly often.

Where were those "cornies" for the past 4 years? Buckeyes face a re-building loading year and NOW you want them? Pussies!

FP, the NCAA (and anyone else) is going to have a hard time getting to the bottom of this one. Baylor hired attorneys to conduct the investigation on its behalf, then told them to report their findings verbally to the board. The only documentation of the 65 or so interviews the lawyers conducted is their notes, which they won't disclose based on attorney work product and attorney client privilege. After hearing their verbal report (attorney client communication, again), the board canned the coach and the board drafted the synopsis that was published and became the university's official position on the matter. All taken care of, nothing more to discuss.

Disgusting, indeed.

Haven't decided, SL. I miss it some days, but don't missing the feeling of having to do it every day (like a job). Ideally, would like to see a rotating cast of contributors. That would make the task manageable, and hopefully encourage diversity in the artists featured.

Just have a suspicion that while one or one of us is entertained by listening to the same band every day, most are ungratefully dead of sheer boredom.
