And if so, why, when I order a calzone with extra ricotta, hold most of the mozarella, do I get a puddle of melted mozarella with a little bit of bread floating on top?
All right, news blogging after all. I couldn't resist this one.
"A small bit of news sparked an idea. Amtrak is resuming service on the City of New Orleans. [Arlo Guthrie] said, "well, there's something we can do."
The City of New Orleans train was made famous by a song that Guthrie released in 1972. Now, Guthrie, his family and some of his musician friends are riding the train from Chicago to New Orleans--holding concerts en route-- to raise money for musicians who lost everything to Hurricane
[Guthrie said,] "In our family, singing's one thing. you also have to do something."
The money raised will also purchase instruments and help flood damaged music clubs, many of which did not have insurance.
Usually, road tours with lots of different musicians take many months to get on track. Arlo Guthrie began by sending a mass email to his friends in August, including one [friend] who would not live to see the tour.
Richard Pryor, who died this weekend, helped underwrite the first show.
Willie Nelson will join Guthrie for the finale."
He's got pains in his brains and chimney scars cover his buns.

You know, I probably have something like seven or eight hours of cynical Christmas music. That cheers me up, irrationally.
