I watched both of those John Green videos and as usual learned more about American politics and policies via your blog than I have from mainstream media. Thank you 🙂
1) Now I have to think about the rights of Intersex people? Um, okay. (Your spellchecker likes the word, so I guess it’s official.)
2) I had nothing in particular against Tom Hayden, but I really, really detested the sound of his whiney voice. There, I said it.
3) R&R Hall of Fame: Never heard of Chic, and judging by the recording provided they are pure crap. Where’s Joy Division? And yeah, Husker Du? Like they never existed?
4) Bobby Vee “helped a young Bob Dylan get his start?” Um no, not exactly. Hired him for two gigs and then fired him. And he didn’t hire “Bob Dylan, he hired “Elton Gunnn.” With 3 Ns.
