A little Latino flair to the travelin’ music this evening

As you might have gathered by now, I’m partial to many types of music. One of my favorite bands is Los Lobos, an L.A.-based group that features a unique Mexican blues/rock fusion. I’ve never had the chance to see them in person, but that’s going to change this evening at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. (One of the Southeast’s best blues bands, Atlanta-based Delta Moon, opens for them.)

I hope Los Lobos play this one tonight, it’s one of their best.

Saw them in Chapel Hill over 20 years ago just after Will the Wolf Survive? was released. It is encouraging to see this unique and original band remain relevant, interesting and prolific for what is going on 3 decades.

In the same vein as Los Lobos, gave fantastic live shows.

NORMAL!!! I see your problem with the smilies. You are using parentheses use colons – with no spaces in between – or if it’s just a plain smily just use the colon and a parentheses – you are putting in too many parentheses.

:roll: — type colon, the word “roll” followed by another colon – no spaces

Well, sounds a little like the Gatlin Brothers, only a little out of tune. I reckon if they practiced awhile they might could get it right.

And now I got something that sticks in my craw, from Sister Dusty:

We have RedNeck for jokes or whatever you want to call his fabrications.(I think he is actually from Buffalo, NY.)

I ain’t never been to Buffalo, NY. I think this poor woman’s spent too much time in a lab slinging human waste and looking at it thru a microscope. But at least it’s good they keep her busy and we don’t have to hear from her except at lunch time when she’s not getting her Burger King Whopper and at night. Anyhow, you can’t insult a Southrener worse than she’s done to me.

Have a good Friday night everybody. I’m headed up to Billy Bob’s for awhile.

Got any buffalo nickles? Do you shuffle off to Buffalo? Do you have summer snow in Buffalo ? Does your buffalo robe itch? Is your sister called “Buffy” ’cause she looks like one?

By the way, honey, my microscopic work is with blood, not “waste” unless you are wasted which would apply in your case. I suggest you eat more Whoppers with your grits. But no cheesy grits with shrimp, for goodness sake. Somebody might think you grew up like Bosch.

Holbrooke is said to have twice proposed holding a second run-off election after he expressed concern over voter fraud allegations. Afghan President Karzai reacted “very angrily” to the suggestion and the meeting ended shortly after.

Case in point: Building a highway through east Atlanta from Ga. 400 down to about I-675, parallel to the Downtown Connector.

John Oxendine, Georgia’s insurance commissioner and a candidate for governor, says the state should consider such a project again…

He emphasized that other roads he suggested were his proposals — an “east-west connector” like a more northern Northern Arc (“I did not use that word,” Oxendine said); an improved Fall Line Freeway; and a far western bypass to get around the Atlanta region. The road parallel to the Connector was not his proposal, he said, but something that should be “studied and considered.”-Urinal

Looks like waterboarding worked pretty well on KSM.

“These scenes provide previously unpublicized details about the transformation of the man known to U.S. officials as KSM from an avowed and truculent enemy of the United States into what the CIA called its “preeminent source” on al-Qaeda. This reversal occurred after Mohammed was subjected to simulated drowning and prolonged sleep deprivation, among other harsh interrogation techniques.

“KSM, an accomplished resistor, provided only a few intelligence reports prior to the use of the waterboard, and analysis of that information revealed that much of it was outdated, inaccurate or incomplete,” according to newly unclassified portions of a 2004 report by the CIA’s then-inspector general released Monday by the Justice Department.

The debate over the effectiveness of subjecting detainees to psychological and physical pressure is in some ways irresolvable, because it is impossible to know whether less coercive methods would have achieved the same result. But for defenders of waterboarding, the evidence is clear: Mohammed cooperated, and to an extraordinary extent, only when his spirit was broken in the month after his capture March 1, 2003, as the inspector general’s report and other documents released this week indicate.”
