Warren Zevon, dying of inoperable lung cancer [press release], is appearing on tonight's Late Show with David Letterman. It's all very sad, and I expect it will be tough to watch.
I only ever bought one Zevon album (Sentimental Hygiene) but I do like it. He was one of those artists I always meant to look into more, and I even saw him live once (or maybe twice) at Wash U. I highly respect his talent and skill; he will be missed. And I promise I'll check out more of his stuff.
"If you're lucky, people like something you do early and something you do just before you drop dead. That's as many pats on the back as you should expect."
I have only just found out today that Mr Zevon is gravely ill and I just wanted to add that I deeply respect this brilliant singer/songwriter and I will not speak in hushed tones at this time. Yay for Warren Zevon!!!!!!!

'No' on Road Tax Would Go Furthest To Ease Gridlock by Marc Fisher [Washington Post]
...which vote will actually make things better, Yes or No? Both sides in the debate make it sound easy, but with five transportation and land-use experts I've consulted, I've found two Yeses, two Nos and a Maybe.He doesn't make that compelling a case, but now I'm Undecided instead of a solid Yes. I'm curious to hear discussion. Anyone (especially locals) want to weigh in?

The results were not complimentary: It found the Northern Virginia plan to be more poorly designed than others...
