Bad News Bearer

I had the unpleasant experience yesterday, once again, of delivering the bad news that slams a person prematurely into fate. Coincidentally, the morning paper ran an article on singer/songwriter Marc Cohen who is doing a show in Denver where he also ran into his fate last year as a victim of a drive-by shooting. Here's an excerpt from his song Live Out This Dream inspired by his near-death experience:

Now that a meteorite has fallen
In the chair you just got out of to answer the phone
Will you live every moment like it just might be the last?
Or will you just bitch and moan?
Fate is kind, fate is cruel
Fate is terminally cool
It's a random interruption
In the middle of your groove.
