Exploding Banana Math, Gene Clark

Scoring a Banana, Part II

Free bananas pose a problem for another RIKLblog entry, however. Three "yesterdays" ago, in discussing bananomics, I calculated the ratio of the most to the least expensive banana, and found a 43 to 1 range. Of course with free bananas, one must divide by 0, which makes the resulting ratio undefined. Curse you, Amazon!

He was my favorite Byrd. He created some stunning albums, and wrote some remarkable lyrics. He died 19 years ago today. Curse you, the System.

* Banana joke: Of COURSE I can spell banana. I just don't know when to stop.
