Monday Mornings Are Lively Enough!

Monday, May 23, 2011
Okay, I know we all play the Boomtown Rat's song on Mondays, but do you know what the song is about? Via Wikipedia:
According to Geldof, he wrote the song after reading a telex report at Georgia State University's campus radio station, WRAS, on the shooting spree of 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer, who fired at children playing in a school playground at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, California on 29 January 1979. She killed two adults and injured eight children and one police officer. Spencer showed no remorse for her crime, and her full explanation for her actions was "I don't like Mondays; this livens up the day."
Damn, but that puts this song into an entirely different perspective. Do me a favor, don't follow Brend Ann's example. Crazy is not a way to deal with Monday, neither is murder.
