Today's song: "Give me the Keys" by Huey Lewis and the News. "I can see you got your motor running. But don't you think you're moving kind of slow? If you feel the way I feel, let me get behind the wheel! Give me the keys, and I'll drive you crazy. Give me the keys and I'll drive you out of your mind!" I know it's corny, but I like it.

Happy Birthday to Aretha Franklin. We love you!

Christian Rappo writes "Hi Dave, I wake up this morning and you know what? They tell us that there is a war not so far from Switzerland, my place. A war in a warland! Bad days." I agree. I feel that World War III may be starting. I don't like what my country is doing.
