After hearing about Joe Strummer's sudden death, I promptly emptied the fridge of all alcoholic libations. Joe Strummer was a sensitive, intelligent man who shouldn't have hung up his skates at age 50, while fuckheads like Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms pollute the planet with their presences for twice as long. One more voice against the system has been taken away. We all need to yell a little louder now. Thank you, Joe, for being my guitar hero. May you rest in peace and teach those fucking angels some new toons. The world is a worse place for your passing.
