This is from the Richard & Linda Thompson infamous “Tour From Hell”. Richard had taken up with another woman, but contractual obligations forced them to tour together following the release of ‘Shoot Out The Lights’.  ‘Shoot’ was a compelling chronicle of the disintegration of their relationship and one of the best albums of the 1980’s.  […]

Primary Elections Results Thread-Sept. 6, 2018

I’m a pessimist by nature–and I’m pessimistic this evening. At least when it comes to the three key statewide races. I have the most hope for the Harris-Carper race. But the small turnout for that GOTV event last night concerns me. I’m not sure we’re quite there yet, at least not at the statewide level. […]
