Poet X of PDX: "Subject: A True North Dakotan/Mystery CD Theme.

"Those of us from North Dakota will probably always blanch at the thought of paying for either parking or water. I know I still do, and I moved away several decades ago. That realization was made last night when I attended a concert (Jason Mraz) and paid for parking, other than street meters, for the first time since the Mariners' 1995 playoffs.

"Mystery CD Theme for work Monday: Joni Mitchell, Cher, Ray Charles, Loretta Lynn, Billy Stewart, Vera Lynn, Willie Nelson, Marc Anthony, Bobby Darin, Etta James, Skip James, Peggy Lee, Billy Joel, Sade, Paul Simon and Elton John.

"(Stop reading now if you want to try to guess the theme.)

"The theme? They don't have a last name among the lot of them! Honorable inclusion: Tommy James and the Shondells, The Dave Matthews Band and Keb Mo."
