Look at Carly Fiorina, John McCain's top economic surrogate - if you can find her this week, after the news and her narrative fused in a negative way. Dismissed as head of Hewlett-Packard after the company's stock plunged and nearly 20,000 workers were let go, she was rewarded with $44 million in compensation. Sweet!
Thank God McCain wants to appoint a commission to study the practice that enriched his chief economic adviser. On the campaign trail this week, McCain and Palin pledged to "stop multimillion dollar payouts to C.E.O.'s" of failed companies. Good. Go talk to Fiorina at your next strategy session.

From Joe Biden
In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Biden said wealthier taxpayers would indeed pay more under the proposals of. Under his plan, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.
"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said. Of those who would pay more, he said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."

i was calling to ask who made that dish called "the chronic" in greer and what it was.

So, weird things happen. I don't know much about Richard Marx. I know he is a good songwriter, I know that a girl that set in front of me in 7th grade English wore his shirt about three times a week, I know he wrote with Vandross, and I love me some LV.
But apparently Richard (that's Mr. MarXXX if you're nasty) is a big fan of Sigur Ros. Such a fan that when he realized he wasn't going to be able to attend the Chicago show for which he had tickets, he bought tickets to the NY date and decided to auction the Chicago Tix off for Cystic Fibrosis which you can bid on here: http://www.richardmarxauction.com/cgi-bin/auction.cgi?action=BuyerViewProductDetail&ProductID=1000000000324724
Certain to be a night worth holding onto...
After Friday's disappointing turn out for Egon Alapatt's (Stones Throw Records / former WRVU boss / General Purveyor of Things Good) world-class Turk-Hop DJ set at City Hall, Next Big Nashville righted itself with the help of the young, go-getters from Lake Fever Productions.
I have no idea what the fellows in How I Became the Bomb were wearing, but nevertheless they played a great set mostly of new material from their new record which I think is finally finished-- Nashville's very own Chinese Democracy. Black and metallic purple WTF suits notwithstanding, How I Became the Bomb remain the band I'd have open for the Super Furry Animals at my "Wow, I am rich and this is the kind of Birthday Party I throw myself" Brithday party.
Big Shout outs to Jeff the Brotherhood and Skyblazer for what might be some of the most interesting anything, going on anywhere. I even threw a bottle (a plastic one, tossed gently) on the stage. I wish I had pictures but i was too busy dancing.
