My son regarded what we did as illegal. He kept saying it was wrong to steal
the music. I told him we were listening to it, just that. When we were
finished we could trash it if he preferred. If he wants to fight for my
rights he could call up BMI and ask them why my broadcast-related payments
were so low during the years The Who were in the top 10 AOR playlists. He
might ask them why during the 1989 Who tour, when we paid a huge sum of
money to BMI for the right to perform songs I had written, they eventually
paid me (after a lot of complaining from my manager) a tiny portion of that
sum, excusing themselves because their main payout area that year was
Townshend on the recording industry.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
