The "Paul Kerschen & the Cast of Thousands" live recordings are finished—my God, they sound good. They sound better than the record in several respects. I'll try to have some mp3s of new songs up relatively soon, and probably we will put out a very-limited-edition 2-CD set free to members of the fan club. You get to be a member of the fan club by sending me an email and telling me you would like to have the CD.

Yesterday the parent of a friend, a fairly conservative gentleman, said to me, "I haven't yet decided whether Reagan numbers among the great presidents, but he did give people a good feeling again—a positive attitude. And with a that sort of positive attitute, a country can get an awful lot done." I was sort of taken aback to hear anyone float the possibility of Reagan being a great president, the airport-naming lobbies aside, but admittedly I was too young during the eighties to detect any national Good Feeling or lack thereof, and most of my subsequent looks back have been through the filter of Central American history and Reagonomic theory as manifested in the policies of the current administration, so I'm not impartial. But I still do not understand how supply-side economics is supposed to help anyone.
