    I'm not sure how much longer I can remain here...time will tell.  I love most of you...I really do.

    At any rate, heres some good Midwestern fare for you.....

      Read your diary. Started reading the comments and said fuck it. Struck a nerve, huh? They don't know you. Keep the faith, brother - don't sweat the small shit.

      •  thanks, CW (4+ / 0-)

        It's not truly easy to be known here, but once you wander into the ocean...fuck...you are chum in the water.

        I think I'll just stick around here, all things considered.  It's really the best of DKos anyway.  Great digest of the daily news, great commentary, and a smallish community of like minded people.

        I really think this nightly diary is all I really need from Dkos.  And I say that sincerely...not as any empty accollade to Joe.  It's really, at the end of the day, all I need.  And want.  

        Thank you, Joe, for filling that need as competently, as creatively, and as compassionately as you do day in and day out.  You are, in my mind, next to Meteor Blades in terms of what makes this place worth returning to everyday.

        I will always check in here, and chat and share songs...not sure if I'll ever post another diary, however.

        that speaks to people of a certain age and from a certain place/

        Really...he is very under rated.  And so Is Iris Dement.  I have never seen Greg Brown in concert,,,but I have Iris...and when she sings...when she opens her mouth.....people listen in thrall.

        I have witnessed it.  Her voice isn't for everyone...but for music lovers she is a songbird.  And Greg is a treasure just like John Prine.

    •  I missed your album covers diary, but (0+ / 0-)

      skimmed it late. I was surprised that "Their Satanic Majesties' Request" wasn't in there for the lenticular optics.
