I saw Warren Zevon playing in The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ quite a few years ago. I didn’t know it at the time, but he was ill then. He still put on a great show.

I saw him in Seattle at Parker’s Ballroom back in the early ’90s. Joe Walsh just happened to be in town and wandered out onstage to play with him on a couple of numbers.

Great show.

I see they’re blaming the mistake on an intern named Sum Dum Phuk.

Always remember that racism against certain ethnic groups is okey dokey in the media.

All of us are equal just some of us are just more equal.

I’m curious if you got a thumbs-down for calling it disgusting or for calling it hilarious? Which way did you offend someone?

LOL good question. It is possible for something to be gross and hilarious. Look at movies like “Pitch Perfect” or “Team America: World Police” (movies I saw recently). My stalker either is humorless or is okay with stupid people doing stupid things because he is stupid… :-)

I am a horrible person for finding this funny. *sighs* Sometimes though we have to find humor in dark corners in order to continue with life. Some people did die and others are still in the hospital, but interestingly enough a lot of people survived that which is really a miracle. The human spirit is amazing in this story too when I heard the 911 calls people were saying that they just came off a plane crash like it was nothing but were solely concerned with the safety of others that was very heartwarming to me.

I was watching this when it was on and I completely missed it. I guess I didn’t look because it really didn’t matter what the pilots names were.

Perfect choice, song nailed it in the 80s, even more so today. Wanted to say thanks twice because the sidebar of that link led me to an old clip of George Burns on “Dean Martin’s Man of the Hour” roasts. Another great old show.

To what passes for a journalist these days? She was hired for her looks, her ability to read, and speak well. Hell, she could be President.

Who ever the editors where, they have to be so stupid that they could not even realize they had been played for the fools that they truly are.
