We caught these fine lads playin’ and singin’ at the Beasley Orchard Heartland Festival last year. and my oh my, they are awesome. Do give them a listen. And be sure to catch them at the Taste of Tippecanoe coming up on June 20.  We would sure like to see them play at the Story Inn some weekend. Rick, get these boys down to Story!

One of the single best blogs written on all things wonky in our financial system is by Yves Smith, over at Naked Capitalism.  She continues down the path of reason,  fighting the good fight, as our administration plods along, kissing up to Wall Street and the American banking industry. Bookmark her site, now, and read it everyday. It also contains a wealth of links to other top notch articles.

In particular, do read the article, The Quiet Coup, by Simon Johnson over at The Atlantic.
