It’s official. I’ve become my parents

It was bound to happen. I find myself criticizing my daughters music and humming music from the 1980s. It just pops in my head. Only instead of Frank Sinatra, I am humming Don Henley or Phil Collins.

There is one very notable difference between me and the previous generation. When I get a particular tune stuck in my head, I just go to the Internet, type in a few words from the lyrics to determine the album, switch to eBay make a bid and get the CD in the mail 10 days later. Presto.

Just in case you were wondering. The song is the Vice rap from the Miami Vice soundtrack from 1989. Got it on eBay for 10 bucks. 21st Century style.

As I was listening a devious thought popped in my mind. Someone should kidnap Lou Dobbs and Pat Buchanan and drop them down in the middle of a large Miami neighbourhood. They may get a little perspective on America. I spent some time in Southern Florida and it’s Dobbs’ worst nightmare.

    Dude, thats not 21st century style. Paying for music is a thing of the past.

    Lou Dobbs is married to a Latino. How much more perspective do you need??

    That would be like me saying, drop David Campbell down in the middle of a large Goiânia neighbourhood because he made a few comments about the Portugese soccer team. 😉

    I was being a little tongue in cheek. But Lou – spouse not withstanding – is not exactly about to win the Person of the Year Award from the Latino Chamber of Commerce.

    I hear ya — Lou is a bit over the top, especially his leprosy statistics regarding immigrants who cross the Mexican border. Talk about a guy who won’t capitulate to the fact that he falsefied information.
