The Waterboys Friday

Special oil spill edition

In honor of the horrified and heartbroken fishermen of Louisiana, here is “Fisherman’s Blues” by Scottish folk-rock band The Waterboys. (Perhaps this is obvious, but this is the song I always sing along to when it plays on the jukebox at Molly’s, one of my favorite New Orleans bars—they might be listening to this and talking about the oil spill there right now.) Also, some oil spill coverage from New Orleans papers The Gambit and The Times-Picayune.
