Re: Greg Kot, leaving the Chicago Tribune

I have been thinking a lot about Kot the "rock critic" this morning, and one of the things that struck me was that his style was to exert pressure over time.

Re: Get well soon, Pete Libertine

It strikes me that Thailand just might not be the best place to do rehab. Kind of like you don't go to Emeril Lagasse's Las Vegas Fat Camp.

Re: Home Audio Suggestions

I've browsed Tivoli and Bose, but without a demo I'm uncertain whether dropping $500 on one of these little boxes is worth it. Neither are worth a shit, terrible brands that are all about marketing rather than quality sound. If you want something compact, I would look for a Cambridge Audio unit lik...
