    Tom Brokaw just quoted this routine from the late Dick Gregory:

    Last time I was down South I walked into this restaurant, and this white waitress came up to me and said, “We don't serve colored people here.” I said, “That's all right. I don't eat colored people. Bring me a whole fried chicken.” Then these three white boys came up to me and said, “Boy, we're givin' you fair warnin'. Anything you do to that chicken, we're gonna do to you.” So I put down my knife and fork, I picked up that chicken and I kissed it. Then I said, “Line up, Boys!”

    He raised a lot of money for MD, but he was far from a good, decent man. His homophobia, misogyny, and racism kind of balanced it out.

    I was not aware. Thanks for the correction.

    Walter Becker, of Steely Dan fame, passed away.
    Both him and Donald Fagen were famous for being insufferable jerks but I simply grew up listening to them way too much. Thanks for all the wonderful hours of enjoyment.
    I gather a night of Steely Dan is due.
