Truck drivers aren't safe, fuel-conscious dudes???
I look forward to patronizing this establishment after 8:02 p.m., when Passover ends. I hope that Ed will join me.
Is that recording available on iTunes? I want it!
Happy Sweet 16, gents. Wishing you many more.

Great post, Rep. It's tough to narrow it down to five, but here goes: Ludwig van Beethoven. The Fifth Symphony opened my ears to classical music. The Ninth rocked (and still rocks) my world. The sonatas, the string quartets, Fidelio -- the list goes on and on. And, apparently, Ludwig van was quite the improviser in his day! The Beatles. Don't ask me to choose a favorite song or album. Each has its own resonance. Bob Dylan. The volume and quality of his output ("oeuvre" if you went to the Tisch School of the Arts) is, truly, staggering. Every song is a masterpiece. Well, okay, maybe not "Joey." Johann Sebastian Bach. Though Ludwig van is my favorite, I know enough to realize that it really all began with J.S. He was the template for everything that followed. Tom Petty. How can a bar band from Gainesville, Fla. have so much impact? Amazing. "Refugee" gets me every time. Honorable mentions, in no particular order: Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Muddy Waters, James Brown and Mickey Katz.
