Whatever Happened to You and I?

So tonight we're celebrating $5.99 Burger Monday at a local establishment near TWDQ HQ and we hear something we don't think we've ever heard before:  Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes on a restaurant sound system.

As such, we paid a little more attention than usual, bringing us to This Week's Discussion Question:
Why do I give Johnny a pass on a grammatical error in a chorus, but not the BoDeans?
Please keep the discussion civil and feel free to wander off into "That's Steve Van Zandt getting the pass, actually," or "YouTube is awesome."

The Wall Street Shuffle

Good on both of the local dailies for carrying the Times' story on commodities manipulation. The west side of the river had it on the front page and their counterparts to the east had it on page 2.  Charlie Pierce has it absolutely right about Occupy Wall Street:  They may not have a coherent message, but they're yelling at the right buildings.

That brings us to This Week's Discussion Question:
Where the hell is my pitchfork?
Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Hey Detroit ought to at least get a cut of this action!" or "Torches! We're gonna need torches, too!"
