Options May 22, 2013: Bronwyn salutes Memorial Day with Songs of War; an Equipment Failure prevents the appearance of the Special Guest, but there are some fine vinyl segues anyhow; one song is interrupted but the needle drops right in the same spot. Plus: Weaponized butt skin

Sorry about your cold :(

...We are @ War.
- Compare: The Cold War was only 'Cold' if you were actually in the U.S. or U.S.S.R. - because we didn't wanna have a Nuclear Holocaust.
- It was pretty 'Hot' in Southeast Asia, South America, places in Africa...

Hey Bronwyn and Thunkers! Hey Kat, RevRabbit and Danne! :)
Listened to this appropriate country soundtrack while my hands were busy with some messy, leftover ribs!

Mexico is a WarZone - just because we have this thing called a Border - & on one side there's $, & on the other drugs.
- In the World Wars against Fascism, the U.S. became the Arsenal of Democracy
