A Belated Happy Birthday

Chuck Berry's birthday was a couple of days ago, and I didn't get around to commemorating it. Now I understand from Halle that he was a big-league jerk, but there's no denying that he was a guitar-playin' fool, and IMHO, any black guy that can get away with singing "My Ding-A-Ling" to an audience full of white chicks, even in the early 70's, has got something worth commemorating - even 2 days late!

That song was an homage to doorbells, yes?

Definitely a great performer!

Speaking of performers, what's up with Gov. Goodhair? Is he on ecstacy or something?

Hey, Dave! Yes. Yes it was.

Hi FW! Please don't rub it in. So embarrassing to have the national spotlight on our doltish gov. OTOH, he's certainly got plenty of competition.
