Lawyers, guns and money

So what do you do when the world seems to be going a little nuts? Or at least a little more nuts than usual. We woke up to a pall of smoke over Hades, from forests fires around Le Tuque, Qu├ębec. That's about 200 miles away. People actually called firefighters in Ottawa to investigate where the smoke was coming from. Nuthin' on the news about it, because CBC was going on about the economy (better) and British Petroleum in the Gulf of Mexico (catastrophic). Then Israel killed some people on boats bringing relief supplies to the Gaza. (Apparently they now "regret" this.)

Furthermore, we just learned of a family crisis concerning a close friend in Victoria, and a scary health and safety crisis affecting one of elder daughter's pals. The latter appears to want no action taken. But he might die. Oh...Crud...

While I'm mulling over moral consequences, I need mood music. How about the late great Warren Zevon? Here's "Lawyers Guns and Money" (which about covers it) performed by Zevon's son Jordan and Bob Dylan's son Jacob:

I never did like Warren Zevon, but this crew does a good job with his song.

Good luck, with the crumbling world around you. Seriously, good luck and more to any individual close to you facing medical problems.

I blush to disclose that I was as good as totally unaware of Warren Zevon during his lifetime. It was shortly after his death that I started listening to such gems as "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" "Gorilla, You're a Desperado", and "Veracruz".

Thanks for looking in! World is less crumbling than yesterday with lad-in-imminent-danger finally giving in and getting checked over. At least, that's what he's telling elder daughter who's worried he's just doing that to get her off his case...

Arrived a tad late to your post Persephone, but sending good vibes to you. Thanks for the music.
