Six Days

The exciting sequel to the Obligatory Election 2004 Post!

Normally Umlaut tries to avoid being political in this space... Normally.

Alice Cooper - 1972

Back in 1992 my old roommate, some friends, and I walked down Valencia Street in The Mission after Clinton defeated Bush Sr... Our destination was The Elbo Room where we had vowed to each drink a shot of Southern Comfort in honor of the new President... and we did.

Yes, yes... Umlaut is aware that Alice Cooper is a Republican, but that doesn't mean he's not a Rock God... Let this be the first step towards healing this nation, 'kay?

Besides, if you don't own a copy of Alice Cooper's ALL-AMERICAN album Billion Dollar Babies can you honestly be called an American?? Nope.
