Mrs Miller has been reincarnated

Back in the 1960s, the kidz of the age range of my elder siblings, probably aided by people in radio [turns out it was Gary Owens of Laughin fame], decided to stick it to “the system” by making the songs of Mrs [Elva] Miller hits.

She was a somewhat obese, middle aged women with a horrible, pretentious untrained singing voice. Everyone was in on the joke except her. She was the symbol of the parents of the Vietnam generation.

    This is actually closer to the truth of what is needed to train ‘kids’ in entry level jobs. McDonald’s cash registers dropped those pesky numbers years ago. Honest to God, until I got into a retail business I never met so many willfully stupid people in my life. Until I got into a retail business I never realized that curiosity and self-drive are dead in much of this country. The cretins around here take the attitude, I ‘cain’ do whatever I want – long as it ain’t ee-legal. I’m in the last quarter of my life (thank God) but to an intelligent self starter in their 20s or 30s: either immigrate out of the US or go Gault. There are more like the last Trevon witness than unlike.

      And the companion notion – it’s not illegal unless you get caught.

      One of my favorite anecdotes of my college days in North Carolina – a group us went to a “country store” somewhere out on a rural road – my memory is they had a great pinball machine.

      So this store is really warm inside – it could have been late spring, maybe during summer school… Sitting in the middle of the store on a stool was a window air conditioner blasting cold air out of the front. I thought about asking them if they ever wondered why the more they ran the air conditioner, the hotter the store got…

    I sometimes confuse myself between Mrs Miller and Leona Anderson. It so bad that is is good. Once I had a listen to this, I was hooked. Enjoy the classic “Rats in my Room” :
