As Von periodically does, I'm going to put a note on the fridge. I'll be returning to my usual snark and satire after a week of earnestness. Before I resume the snark, though, I have to mention that Soul Train impresario Don Cornelius apparently took his own life this morning. My favorite Soul Train moment involved a somewhat nonplussed Don Cornelius interviewing members of YMO, the "number one dance band of Tokyo, Japan". What a moment- there's a sense of culture clash, albeit a benign one, and there's the reassurance that the groove transcends all boundaries. It's a pity that Don Cornelius' life took a turn for the worse, and that he ended it all.
We will resume our snark momentarily.
