    When I was a young boy
    My father took me into the city
    To see a marching band
    He said, "Son, when you grow up
    Would you be the savior of the broken
    The beaten and the damned?"

    I know writers who use subtext and they're all cowards.

    Hah, all the scenes shot in the Sopranos household are lighted as if it were a Rosanne episode. Way too much lighting! I figure their first year budget wasn't that great but they decided to keep the same look throughout. It was a good show overall.
