Lightning Striking Again

Way back when I wrote this post, I didn't mean to imply that Ronnie Van Zant was cribbing from Lolita, or even had any idea who Vladimir Nabokov was. But when the Old 97's begin their hilarious "Book of Poems" with the line "Rowboat, lightning, I kissed her yeah, it didn't mean a thing," I assume they know exactly what they're doing.

Rhett Miller did go to Sarah Lawrence, you know.
