I simply could not get to sleep last night. Finally, around 3:30, I decided to do something.
I had a three-year-old bottle of generic Ambien (the lowest dose) sitting around that I’d never used, so I took one out, cut it in half, and took it. I did eventually get to sleep but I just woke up and feel like I was roofied. “Refreshing sleep,” my ass.
Sam Phillips with one of the most exquisite songs ever:

“The sponsors told us it wasn’t balanced,” Paul Simon said. “We said, what do you mean? They said, ‘They’re all Democrats.’ We said, ‘We think of them as all assassinated people.’”
