Today was the anniversary of Kennedy's assassination, a fact that barely registered above the maelstrom of craziness as the congress and some of the mainstream press finally get hip to the incompetence and corruption that half of us have been shouting about for years.

Just a couple of tracks here. One a violin blues reaction to Kennedy's death from a great record called "Can't Keep From Cryin: Topical Blues on the Death of President Kennedy," which came out on Testament/Hightone. And, on an entirely different note (and very tangentially related, in spite of its title), a little electro-punk song that has something vaguely to do with Jackie O., but is really just a good song. Forgive the casual thrown-togetherness, I'm tired. But I didn't want to let the day pass without marking it in some way, graceful, or not-graceful.
