Needle Touching Down


Today I am off to sunny Tacoma, Washington, a city with half an airport, a dome, a zoo, and several car dealerships.

It must have more to recommend it since, if nothing else, Neko Case wrote at least one complete song about it, and an even better song -- one of her best, which is saying something -- that mentions nearby Spanaway.

The image of the snake with the man wrapped around his nose has little or nothing to do with the song in question, "The Needle Has Landed" --
