Papa don't take no mess

I drove by the post office yesterday to see the firemen putting the flag at half staff. I know why, but I'd rather think in my mind it was in tribute to the greatness that is Mr. James Brown.
That's the way it *should* be.

I'm sitting here listening to "Popcorn" right now, thinking when it's my time to go, wouldn't it be great to have a show-out like drawn hearse to the Apollo Theater. Yes indeed.

I'm sure there's an Iraqi dictator swinging from the gallows by the time I finish typing this, but as far as I'm concerned, there's only one real death that matters in these past few days.

The post office is closed on Monday because of New Year's Day. They are closed on Tuesday because of Ford. I think they should observed James Brown day and close on Wednesday, too. Make my entire week. ;)
