Happy Monday, evraybody, and Happy summer! How was your weekend? Mine was mostly super busy, but yesterday afternoon I took a walk with my pal Eddie to a park where kicking off the annual summer concert series was Smokey Robinson. SMOKEY ROBINSON. We weren't very close to the stage and the acoustics under the trees where we crouched was sucky but omg the man still has his singing chops, and he has the moves too! a little James Brown, a little Tom Jones, a lot of Miracles. And oh that voice. Swoon. After the concert, we walked through the cool fog to another neighborhood where Eddie knew a bar so divey it looked closed from the street. The best kind, right? We had a beer and caught a streetcar back to his house where my car was parked. A lovely afternoon.

On to the craigyferg.

Craig's scheduled guests tonight are Kathy Bates and Joel Stein. Now there's an improbable combo.

I just watched last Friday's show. If you didn't see it, do watch. It has animals and Craig being thoughtful and reflective in a way we don't get to see often enough. A good show all the way through, but I don't know what happened to tweets and emails -- they weren't in the vids.

I'm gonna miss that guy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
