“I Doubt That Kurt Cobain Ever Did Enough Work to Wear a Hole in His Pants”

An older woman from St. Paul named Barbara sat next to me while I was reading by the lake this evening. She is currently receiving a month of free HBO from Comcast and had some pretty unflattering things to say about Kurt Cobain.

I brought that on myself by telling her I was a music critic. I made sure to tell her that I’m also an immigration attorney, because I like to watch Midwesterners try to use “Mexican” and “welfare” in the same sentence without seeming racist.
