of Carter Family songs that you'll ever find.
Garrison Keillor mentioned several times that he was

and "a boy band." 

"Codgers," replied Facebook.

Lunch Will Be In E-Minor  

I went over to Joe's in Raleigh on Thursday night a week ago so's I could get a bit of sleep and not have to drive an hour to the RDU airport and deal with parking and all that, at 4:30 AM. I did manage to sleep some, and we got going on time and were in line with enough time to make the flight to Atlanta, which was where Delta goes before going anywhere else. We switch planes in Atlanta for a string of MD-80s and -90s. The flight from Atlanta to Hartford, CT, was aided by strong tail winds and we got up there in less that two hours, with a fantastic fly-over of lower Manhattan plus various other sights such as the stretch of Long Island and Philly and Chesapeake Bay, a travelogue of the whole East Coast really, all for the watching, and I had a window.
