Fins to the Left - When Mid-Majors Attack (In Paradise)
The music of Jimmy Buffett has been specifically synthesized (in an evil underground laboratory, perhaps) to appeal to a very narrowly-defined segment of the American population: middle-aged men living in cold-weather climates who spend most of their days behind desks.

We visited Fort Wayne back in December. We met people who are very proud of a town for which there's very little to be proud of anymore. Our friend Craig visited this past Tuesday for IPFW's non-conference blowout of Chicago State, and weaved in some reasons why it used to be a great town for basketball. Plus, he got to meet Don the Mastodon.
