Five Songs, Part 94 (the Clint Eastwood edition)

Well, it’s the day after the Republicans wrapped up their relatively (and brazenly) fact-free convention, and it’s not saying much that the most talked-about moment last night wasn’t the nominee’s speech — it was the mad, off-the-cuff, 82-year-old ramblings of a screen icon known for few words of gravitas in public, and great control and nuance on screen and off.

Can’t go into this Labor Day-weekend edition of Five Songs without thinking of the once-mighty Clint Eastwood, flailing wildly at 70 mph breaking pitches at the end of his legendary career.

Anyway, have at it. And don’t labor too hard this so-called Labor Day weekend …
