I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Listening to Dar Williams, One-Track Mind, and the Capitol Steps. One-Track Mind is a little-known band whose drummer took my Politics of the Midlife Crisis class and gave me their CD. The Capitol Steps is the lovely, outdated Clinton-era Sixteen Scandals.
