And another chair in the House goes empty...for now. For the record, I do not concur with Dionne's Lamentations™ over Obey's departure in this little fluff piece, but I DO rather enjoy Obey's reasons for abandoning ship...go read it-it's great theater. In the meantime, enjoy one of my all time favorite bands portraying my joy...

Consider this an Open thread...
