Warren Zevon, "Mr. Bad Example"

>> Thursday, April 05, 2012





Remember when characters like the one in this song would have been indicted? These days, not so much. I mean, this is one of my very favorite Warren songs, but listening to it today I couldn't help noticing that there is kind of a flaw in the premise of it insofar as its implied he's bouncing around the globe and ending up in some seedy places because he has to skedaddle every time his lowlifeosity gets discovered and his latest ripoff scheme unravels. That is so 20th Century when you think about it. These days? These days, Mr. Bad Example would be running a brokerage firm ripping off the muppets.

So much for the orderly flow of karma.
