A Message to Lucinda

I was just listening to Lucinda Williams' seminal album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. I was reminded when listening to "Joy" of something I had wanted to say for a long time. You will not find your joy in West Memphis. I've been to West Memphis. I don't think there's any joy to be found there unless you win big at the dog track. Now I've never been to Slidell, so I can't say for certain, but I'm not too sure there's a lot of joy to be found there either.
