Freeway To Stairbird

As a follow up to Rock's Oldest Joke: "Freebird!", I've been directed to Rev. Billy C. Wirtz's "Freeway To Stairbird," off of the album Pianist Envy.

Its an amusing novelty tune that very much parallels the gist of the WSJ article.

FREEWAY TO STAIRBIRD

Funny, I never would have found the song, but for the WSJ article . . .

'The R. Crumb Handbook'

Crumb


“The R. Crumb Handbook,” the most recent in a series of biographies of such luminaries as Elvis, Marilyn and Jackie O., was put together by Peter Poplaski with Crumb offering occasional comments. There is also an accompanying CD of music by Crumb and his various musical groups—the Cheap Suit Serenaders, Les Primitifs du Futur, et al. The music itself poses no threat to the string bands from the '20s and '30s Crumb adores (here's a bet that this inveterate collector of 78s doesn't even own a CD player). But the joy and verve which it's played hints that inside the ornery artist who's playing these tunes lurks a joyous and unironic spirit: R. Crumb, musical softie.

"It Is Wisest to Always Err on the Side of Life"

Here's an astounding quote:

Upon signing the Schiavo Law, President Bush declared:

"It Is Wisest to Always Err on the Side of Life" 

Bush has been criticized for overseeing the execution of 152 convicted criminals while governor, more than any other governor in the history of the United States. Texas's penal system allows the governor to grant a single 30-day reprieve for each offense -- which then Governor Bush did for but one death row inmate.

Since that time, much of the nation's capital punishment system has come under increased scrutiny for being unfairly and unequally applied, as well as being riddled with procedural errors.

So much for "erring on the side of life."
