I went for a run. Yup. I got nothin' else. I don't think. No rant. Nothin'. Seems my displeasure with the federal government has melted into a dismal everyday way of life and there's nothing in particular that I feel like bitching about. The Dow Jones is actually up again today and if it closes in positive numbers, that'll make 5 out of the last 6 days that it has. Hmmm... I guess that means America's gonna be okay then. Ha, yeah, well, not exactly. It's a hgood thing but it's a little too soon to be saying that everything's on its way to getting back to normal. We're at around 7,300 and we need to push over 10,000 for Americans to make back the money they lost since Obama was inaugurated. Long way to go.

Days Since My Last Run: ONE WEEK . . . UGH (BAD!!!!!!!!!)
12:45 am - 64° - mostly sunny, warm but not terribly so.
Whew. That was strange. A week since I've been on the trail seems to me now like a month or even a year. It's bizarre how I felt like a stranger out there. And my legs didn't exactly enjoy what I was there on the trail to do. Now that I'm home and showered, I feel spent. My run was accomplished but it definitely wasn't easy. The whole entire week between runs is NOT GOOD. NOT DAMN GOOD. Freakin' pollen and rain. Excuses, excuses. I'm not doing good for March.

The Unclouded Day
First album from Don Henley since the Eagles broke up and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I've heard and I like Henley's two or three albums that follow this one but except for one song -- Dirty Laundry -- I'd never this debut until very recently. The music's alright but I'm not exactly loving a bunch of the lyrics here. Johnny Can't Read is just dumb. It's supposed to make a political statement, sort of, or it's a condemnation of the failure of American schools to properly educate everyone... but as a song -- no, especially in the manner it's presented here, all upbeat and poppy. Whatever... although, it does have a couple interesting seconds at the end when he throws in a line of lyrics from a popular Eagles song. Anyway, Henley's later albums are definitely better crafted than this. Lilah is really nice, Them And Us isn't bad and Long Way Home is almost a great ballad so it's not all lame. Dirty Laundry, though, is definitely the stand-out tune, the ever-popular early Henley hit that can still, I'm guessing, be heard on the radio today. That tune makes this album worth it.

back in the day there was a Dirty Laundry music video on MTV...
but I couldn't find it. Oh well. Here's a live version from May 2000.
