Good to see your post about "You're the Girl I Love" (aka "Say It in Private") by Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the genesis of "You're the Girl I Love" and 100 other great Goodman songs.

You can find out more at my Internet site (below). Amazingly, the book's first printing sold out in just eight months, all 5,000 copies, and a second printing of 5,000 is available now. The second printing includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575.

To order a second-printing copy, see the "online store" page of my site. Just trying to spread word about the book. Feel free to do the same!

MB,

You play banjo, too? A true renaissance man!

I love all the tunes, esp. "Grits Ain't Groceries." I suggest a 2008 update, "Grits are Groceries," in the vein of the compassionate conservatism that brought you, "yes, ketchup is a vegetable."

God Rest His Soul, Ronnie, Icon-to- the-Republicans, who like to elect people who aren't presidents, but play them in real life.

MB,

On a different subject, have you caught any of the Winter Soldier?

tw,

I just read some of the testimonials at the link you offered. The stories are similar to, though the particulars different from, those of the original Winter Soldier hearings, which I recently saw, featuring an eloquent young John Kerry.
