The DA Diversion of the Day
Posted by Michael Cohen

Every once in a blue moon there is a non-foreign policy story that merits attention on Democracy Arsenal. Today is one of those days:

Apparently Ron Wood, lead guitarist for the Rolling Stones is going into rehab for alcohol abuse. I know, shocking right?

But here's the best part of the story:

"Wood, who has had a history of substance abuse, told Reuters in an interview last year that his wife and Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger had persuaded him to enter rehab before the band’s 2002 tour.

Before then, it was fellow guitarist Keith Richards who tried to help him sober up, he said, sometimes drawing a knife or wielding a pistol in the process."

It's a wonder that didn't work.

You know, it seems to me that if Ron Wood wants to sober up his best bet might be NOT TO HANG OUT WITH KEITH RICHARDS.

And just to show that I can bring this around to politics: it's like trying to be a uniter not a divider . . . and then selecting Dick Cheney as your Vice President.

I think there should be some sort of Logan's Run law that says rock musicians must retire by the age of 40, at the very latest. There is nothing more revolting and ridiculous than seeing prune-faced, burned out 50 year olds, and even 60 year olds, partying like teenagers and prancing about on stage with all the comical posturing, preposterous haberdashery and grandiloquent mannerisms of the young, self-absorbed rock star, with their musical tastes and abilities permanently retarded in a style that is designed primarily for immature and hyperactive minds.
