Happy Hump Day!

This Week’s Idiots:

The Boston Globe’s Scot Lehigh is an idiot.

Salon’s Amanda Marcotte (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

For the next few days, we’ll be in Iowa at our annual combined Thanksgiving/Christmas/family reunion.  Since part of my role as patriarch over this big and growing family is dispensing advice – some requested, some not, and occasionally of the “you need a damn good talking-to” variety, it seems appropriate to present a tune that is all about good advice; in this case, buying dirt.  Here, from Jordan Davis’ second studio album Bluebird Days, is the 2021 song Buy Dirt. Enjoy.
