Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Billie Holiday, where are you?

By Brent Dannells - Grover Beach

A few new verses I wrote for the old jazz blues classic, “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizness”:

If I should take a notion/ To jump into the ocean,/ ’Tain’t nobody’s bizness if I don’t wear a bathing suit./ Yeah, at Pirate’s Cove, we run around bare,/ Without a stitch of underwear./ ’Tain’t nobody’s bizness if we do.
