We Got Off Easy!

But Sebastian Bach's house got totally trashed by Hurricane Irene.  And even I'm not mean enough to make a joke about the first line of this song.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm mean.  I'm just not that mean.

Two of the Finest

Rest in Peace Jerry Leiber and Nick Ashford.  You will be missed.
