I too was wonderin' if Mr. Newman had seen a light at the end of a tunnel.

Gives a nice sense of the workings of Divine Judgement for those of us who are also poised between 'pretty bad' and just plain ol' 'bad,' nonetheless.
Rather consoling, actually...

Randy Newman is the greatest songwriter that has ever lived. I recently discovered his music after reading a book about Tom Waits entitled "Low Side Of The Road" and my only regret is that I have lived up until now without his music.

I truly have been changed by his songs. Really, I can't mean that in a more honest and sincere way. He's got such a "no bullshit" attitude toward writing and his songs touch me in a way that no other person's ever have. I am grateful to have discovered his music and I look forward to their greatness being woven into my owns songs.

Thanks Randy. You're the best man.

I thought maybe Randy was rethinking his spiritual views, then realized he overheard me at Jazzfest!
