    In response to SonicsMonksLyresVicars' comment:

    DD - you offer an inch, I take a mile.  ;-)   There isn't much music I despise more than modern, wet Country music.  When "Country music" is good it's very, very good but when it's bad it's embarrassingly awful in a $2,500 hat.  And that is really, really bad.

    King Hank I, Johnny Cash, Hasel Atkins, et al weren't as "punk" as {fill in the blank}....they kicked the ar*e of most skinny bejeaned "Punk" poseurs.

    For the record, and in the spirit of Glasnost and Perestroika (:-)), if I could choose one - officially qualified - person to be the next President of the USA it would be Eric Reed Boucher.  <3
