Groucho Marx Sings GOP Theme Song!

"I don't know what they have to say,
It makes no difference anyway,
Whatever it is, I'm against it.
No matter what it is or who commenced it,
I'm against it.

Your proposition may be good,
But let's have one thing understood,
Whatever it is, I'm against it.
And even when you've changed it or condensed it,
I'm against it.
I'm opposed to it,

On general principle, I'm opposed to it.

[chorus] He's opposed to it.
In fact, indeed, that he's opposed to it!

For months before my son was born,
I used to yell from night to morn,
Whatever it is, I'm against it.
And I've kept yelling since I first commenced it,
I'm against it!"

Lover Official Music Video - Tom Goss

From the Department Of Definitely Worth Sharing:

From the YouTube notes:
"Lover" tells a story very rarely told: of the loss endured by partners of gay servicemembers who are killed in battle.

The video features Tom Goss as the bereaved partner of an army soldier (DC actor Ben Horen) killed while on duty in Afghanistan. Among those playing medics who come to the aid of the wounded soldier are several former servicemembers who were discharged under the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy: Mike Almy, David Hall, and Danny Hernandez, all of whom are active members of SLDN. Keith Bryant stars as a fellow soldier.

The video, Goss's fourth, was filmed in DC and Alexandria. is being directed by DC residents Aram Vartian and Michael Key of DC; Dylan Comstock is director of photography."

Internet in the Storm's nice to have the internet in this stormy weather, especitally the West Seattle blog for local conditions. One would hope that many towns and neighborhoods would have something similar, as the "worldmind" gets small, more detail-oriented, and effective.

I'm also using the Metro website to check The Lovely Wife's current bus route and the White Center blog for additional local news. The cable TV is all o.k. as far as it goes, but it can't be as focussed on my particular needs.
