Stop Dancing On the Ceiling











I like Lionel Richie as much as the next guy. But I'm awfully tired of getting hit with "Three Times a Lady" every time I step into a public space. The unavoidable canned music in Westport and virtually every other major outdoor shopping area is no less noxious than secondhand cigarette smoke. What's wrong with the sounds of street traffic, chirping birds and the conversation of passerby?

Believe it or not there are still numerous places to listen to unadulterated traffic sounds, even bird chirping. Now, lets talk about your desire to eavesdrop on the conversations of passers by....

    I tossed perspective in the dumpster in 2003, UL.

    The best aspect of that clip, Emaw, is that it's posted by a Ron Paul booster. Ha ha.
