Nothing Says America Like Golf

My wife and I were watching the Music Choice stations we have with our cable package and I began wondering why some frontmen feel the need to go solo or even create new bands. Going solo aggravates me more especially if the music the person makes is similar to the music the band was making (I'm looking at you, Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20). Jack White confuses the hell out of me. I like Jack White (but not the White Stripes) but why do you need to form two bands and associate yourself with about a dozen more and have a solo career? I then hate it when the frontman goes off to do solo work then returns to the band to make a horribly crappy album and uses that as an excuse to break up the band. Again, looking at you Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20.

Ugh. I do not like the new layout for the Sunday strips. It leaves too much space on the sides and makes the post way too long format-wise. I'm sure it wasn't Chip's decision to move to this format and he's not one to complain because complaining just eats into his own time when he could be golfing.
