A few thoughts and videos from long ago and far away

Sam Kouvaris informs me this morning that “Dance the Night Away” was released by Van Halen on this date – IN 1979! I was six years out of high school, living in Dallas, Texas, at the very centre of the Urban Cowboy outbreak. This is NOT my favorite Van Halen tune, but damn. Thanks, Sam! […]

Tuesday with Thomas…Sowell, that is
