Isn't the LAW no longer really the LAW?
It was bought by rich right wing investors and gutted a few years back.
It is just a brand name now otherwise severed from its history.

Was going to post a picture of Johnny enjoying some birthday cake, but I see that has been accomplished.

One of the greatest pictures in the history of photography.

The impressive thing about Johnny Cash was how serious he could be and at other times whimsical.

Bono tells a story of hanging out with Johnny and June in the mid late 90s.  Bono asked Johnny if he missed touring.  Johnn laughs and goes, "no, not at my age.  Livin' out of a hotel room or a tour bus, driving 2,3, sometimes 7 hours to the next show, hustling to catch plane rides, the bad promoters, indifferent crowds.  No, I don't miss that.

'I do miss  the drugs, though."

Did Bono tell him he was doing it wrong before he went back to his private jet?

And don't forget possibly the greatest cover of all time.

And his guest spot on The Simpsons was excellent as well.
