You think you got troubles? Man, let me tell you about my blues. Yesterday
afternoon my entire cable went dead! That meant no ESP games, no A's-Bosox
historical suicide squeeze marathon, no Cubbies, nada. Fortunately, I
discovered a way to turn my cable wire into a local antenna, and
(amazingly) the best station I could receive was the PBS outlet. Two hours
of wiggly, squiggly, out of focus blues movie, ditto for the Muddy Waters
"American Masters" show that preceded it.

Today I found out what happened to the cable. Comcast shut it off! Why?
Because my kid, who had a dedicated cable modem in his crib, moved out
three months ago and didn't pay his bill. So the hose-heads at Comcast
mistakenly shut my line off, not his. Guess whose muddy shoes are gonna be
teaching which kid what the blues is all about real soon. ;)
