On Thursday night I checked in with Sean Hannity on Fox News. After a tense exchange over my forthcoming album Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, we moved on to the news of the hour - in particular the President's very unpresidential performance overseas this week, and the contrast with, say, John Howard and Tony Blair after 9/11.
Meanwhile, it's business as usual for the Religion of Peace. Five dead in Tel Aviv (Jews), three dead in Mali (Christians). In the latter attack, terrorists stormed the Radisson in Mali yelling "Allahu Akbar!" and took everyone hostage, freeing those who could recite from the Koran. So, had such notable Koranic scholars as Bono and John Kerry been there, they'd have been the first out. But just remember, as Secretary Kerry et al always say, armed men opening fire while shouting "Allahu Akbar!" and demanding you recite from the Koran is nothing to do with Islam!

As to that album Sean was kind enough to plug, it's called Feline Groovy and it's available for pre-order now from Amazon. It's doing quite well on the jazz charts, even though significant chunks of my CD aren't in the least bit jazzy.
