Todd Snider

I lifted this from over at Woody's joint. Clever and funny.

BTW, Todd Snider has a song on his latest Yep Roc release that tell the now infamous tale of the late, great Dock Ellis who, as was the stuff of '70's baseball legend, threw a no-hitter in the first half of a double header after having ingested a righteous dose of LSD.

I once saw Dock pitch in Pittsburgh with my dad and grandfather. I remember seeing Dock's pink El Dorado parked on the sidewalk outside the players entrance.

Makes one kinda miss the seventies, eh?

I doubt that "privilege" ever extended further down into the body politic than it did then--- before the mutherfocking Raygunauts began reeling it all back in...
