      I know the song is not your genre, rg, but I am really starting to like this guy’s YouTube videos. He breaks the songs down and analyzes them. I am not a musician, so I’m easy to impress, but he seems to know his stuff. I could spend hours here…

      RCF, I’ve watched numerous videos from Rick Beato. Watch the one where he’s lamenting the death of EVH. I had already watched his “What makes this song great?” about Van Halen just a couple weeks before EVH died. He went on and on about what it was like when he first heard EVH’s guitar and how “I had never heard anything like it and we (he and his musician friends in high school) didn’t know what he was doing” on “Eruption”.

      I’m not a musician so some stuff is over my head, but his videos are great. Watch the “What makes this song great?” where he talks about “Superstitious” from Stevie Wonder. Several times he does a Ric Flair “Whooo!” as he’s breaking it down. BTW, that is the funkiest song of all time IMO, from 1 of the 2 funkiest musicians of all time, the other being none other than The Godfather.

      cg, I was watching the one he did about “Runnin With the Devil” before I found the PJ one. I was reading an article about PJ last night. It was interesting, apparently Eddie got his inspiration for the song “Jeremy” from a news article about a 15 year old boy who shot himself in front of his morning english class. Very sad.

      Rick has so much cool stuff on his site, and I have just started to scratch the surface.

      Nick spelled it with a “Th” above. But I digress. I misspell myself occasionally. I misspelled “matte” (which can also be spelled “Matt” per Webster’s…haha) in the Live Blog the other day thinking it’s “mat”. I was pointing out that Miss State was wearing traditional finish lids whereas most teams wear either matte finish or super shiny chrome these days.

      Nick will change his typos if he sees comments about them. My favorite instance of this was when he shared a picture on here of this gigantic, obviously oversized Secretariat statue that is now on Old Frankfort Pike. There were two women posed below it in the photo, and he was like, “really shows you how huge Secretariat was!” Like 10 minutes later I was still laughing about it, and went to leave a mocking comment, but he had already edited that.

      I hear ya, cg, but on the flip side, I learned about a girl who goes to South Oldham HS (our rival) who was a field hockey player. She caught was seemed like a relatively mild case of COVID at least a month ago. And then a few weeks ago, apparently the thing was still living dormant in her system and it started to attack her nervous system. She has basically developed viral meningitis from it. She’s in pretty bad shape – lots of pain, in the local children’s hospital. She needs a lot of prayers.

      So when part of me wants to agree that the press is hyping this too much, I hear a story like this and it brings it all back home. I just feel like it’s an insult to folks like this if I am dismissive of it. Yeah, we can’t have life grind to a halt because of fear, but we can’t downplay it and ignore it either. I think you get it, because I have heard you say it before, so I know I am preaching to the choir. Hope everyone stays safe and healthy!

      Aside from my cousin, I haven’t lost anyone else who is close to me. Have had a couple of other cousins and other family members catch it with relatively minor symptoms. Friend of mine and his wife were laid low by it for a while.

      I don’t with bad things on anyone, but I am afraid that Trump getting a relatively mild case of it and apparently bouncing back quickly (with the help of modern medicine) might be the worst possible outcome for the rest of us. Dude thinks he’s Superman now.

If she had run her campaign like that all along, she might be doing better in the polls. Maybe in the future have the debate much earlier in the campaign.

      I’m with you on term limits, but most (maybe not all) forms of CFR limit the power of Americans, whether left or right, of donating to a group they support (such as pro-life or 2nd Amendment groups in my case) and having those groups speak for us.
