Absolutely fucking amazing. Absolutely. Fucking. Amazing.

Buy the album right now if you haven't already.

I didn't get hip to Pushin' Against a Stone until I saw it on several year-end Best Of lists, and didn't start listening to it until this year. I heard Workin' Woman's Blues back in July but didn't really like it all that much (I think it's the weakest cut on the album) so I didn't check out anything else. I listen to so many different artists that it's one and done for me if I don't like the first song. Harsh, but it also lets me listen to more new artists. Usually if I don't like the first one I won't like subsequent ones. That's not always the case though. Great stuff always slips by, you know? Read below the fold...

Money and elections in Washington: Pro wrestling, but with more respectable clothes

A recent news item highlighted how national politicians aren't sincerely expressing concerns about the influence of money, but playing well-defined roles - and crude ones at that.
