I’m jus’sayin…

It’s the Labor Day weekend. Which means what? Once you get past the smell of barbeque, or manage not get smash mangled during an alcohol juiced stock car road trip to ratsville or swallow copious amounts of aspirin and despair because your dream version of labor has little to do with what you actually do for a living, the September future resembles a long road of compromised hygiene and retrofitted reasons for self medication. Or writing angst poems.

Any way this Sunday night on Wordslingers 9/2//07 8pm-9 pm 88.7 fm WLUW and streaming live on
