Drinking but not driving to Tom Maglliozzi aka either Click or Clack Tappet, who kept me and especially Stephanie company for uncounted Saturdays of errand-running and child-ferrying over many years.  Of Alzheimers.  Said brother Ray, in a statement, "Turns out he wasn't kidding -- he really couldn't remember last weeks puzzler."

Yeah, here's to Tommy. He almost certainly made me laugh more than anyone else I ever listened to on the radio. The first time I ever heard their show, I was driving out of Boston on the Mass Pike. I almost ran off the road, I was laughing so hard.

Yes!  My son, who will be 31 next week, once told me that he considered 'Car Talk' to be the soundtrack of his childhood-- so many Saturday mornings driving him to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, soccer games.....it was endless.  It's really sad to have such an institution fade away.

To me. Cheap sauvignon blanc. I was dumped, after 12 years, because my partner wants to devote all energy and time to her job. It sucks. And to my dear neighbor, who shared my wine and my troubles tonight, and who is a great listener.

Shut up and pour another glass of wine, please.

Thanks for posting the link. That's by far the best assessment of Marion Barry I've read since his death. The comments to it are largely disgusting, unfortunately. Here's to Mr. Barry's memory, such as it is. I've lived with him for a very long time.

To Steve Cymrot, proprietor of Riverby Books, one of the greatest used bookstores in the Mid-Atlantic region, both on Capitol Hill and its original store in Fredericksburg, Virginia. What a horribly sad loss.

I just saw that.  How awfully sad.  I hadn't realized he was the person hit in that accident. He and his wife have been really important to the civic life of Capitol Hill for a long time.

 

(It's also mentioned here, for people who get anti-virus alerts going to that other site.  I don't what the problem is, as it's a legitimate site.  At some point a while back, I started to get virus warnings every time I went there. I ignore them, maybe at my own peril.)

Bobby Keys.  He played with them all, on all the songs you know and love.  Along with Nicky Hopkins, he was rock and roll for all those who garnered greater fame.  From Keef on Twitter.

Ray Davis.  His show (among others on WAMU) totally upped my Bluegrass education when I came to the area in the 1980s.
