Like most people, I first heard Joe Jackson via the single "Is She Really Going Out With Him?"

The best work any artist can muster is the kind that comes from a place where career is never the driving force, age is just a number and one's relevance means little, except to himself. And though Crenshaw is apt to file away the chapter of his earlier life of a rock and roller, it's possible that many exciting chapters lay ahead.

"I managed to pull it off, but there are thousands of other people that haven't, and that's the tragedy. You try to follow a dream and it gradually pales and then you wake up and the rent is due and you don't have the funds to pay it."

Baseball, Steroids and Cowardice

The PED issue, which has now dogged baseball for well over a decade, has been exacerbated by an appalling lack of courage on the part of nearly everybody involved. Cowardly denials, insincere apologies, failing to take responsibility and efforts to scapegoat individuals.
