A Song For A Cold February In Pittsburgh

But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

Every word is true.

UPDATE (February 18, 2013):  Every word is still true.

UPPERDATE (February 22, 2013):  Propositions Board (far right column) continues to be revised -- place your bets! [nudge]  [wink]  [another wink]

UPPERERDATE (February 28, 2013):  We tried to tell you.  Also, new Infytunes (middle column).

UPPERERERDATE (March 1, 2013):  Anything posted in the foreseeable future will be a Snapchat-like post, with a limited shelf life.   Get 'em while they're hot. 

Infytune: American Pie, Don McLean
Infytune: Vincent, Don McLean and Chet Atkins
Infytune: American Pie (annotated), Don McLean
