    Today is National Train Day:

    Seems appropriate for the Steve Goodman classic:

    And what would be National Train Day be without a little Utah Phillips:

    Or Phillips classic essay “Moose Turd Pie.”

    How could I forget Elizabeth Cotton for National Train Day? Here she is with Pete Seeger (who turned 90 last Sunday):

  3. Steve

    How about “Take the A Train” from a million years ago…or Bob Dylan’s “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry?”

    Steve,
    How could I forget Duke Ellington’s jazz standard?

    Oh, and Glenn Miller:
    Chattanooga Choo Choo

    Call it a hunch, but I don’t think any other political blog will be referencing Little Eve singing “The Loco-Motion” today.

    Having said that, I won’t be surprised if Wanda Sykes sings this at the WHCD tonight, or if Bob Schieffer closes with this song on Face the Nation tomorrow. We are, after all, trendsetters 😉

  6. “Let’s go to Iowa and make it official”

    Outstanding!

  7. I loved Wanda! Great stuff about Rush.

    Happy Mother’s Day. If you are a mother, love a mother, have a mother. Or are a mutha.

    Hope it’s a good one and make some mom happy. Please.

  9. Morning all you mothers!

    Happy Mother’s Day all.

    Lotsa pink bats today.

    “One of the greatest things about MLB’s annual recognition of Mother’s Day is the way it empowers all fans to participate in the fight against breast cancer. Hundreds of players again will swing pink Louisville Slugger bats, and fans will be able to again bid on them at a later date at the MLB.com Auction to raise proceeds for Komen for the Cure. Fans can purchase their own personalized pink bat here or at slugger.com, with $10 from the sale of each bat benefiting Komen for the Cure.”

    sad music news today. The wife just told me that a old friend named Stephen Bruton has died in LA while working on a movie sound track for Jeff Bridges new movie. He even gave Jeff guitar lessons to help make the scenes look more realistic. He is notable for being an excellent musician and record producer. Stephen’s first job out of college was playing guitar for Kris Kristofferson. Worked with Bonnie Raitt to Elvis Costello and Delbert McClinton.

  14. That sucks doots, sorry to read the news.

    Saw an LATimes story about Stephen Bruton, Doots, and was wondering if you knew him or of him. Yep.

    Sad news.
