A selection of the 30 insights Richard Glover has gained from listening to the blues:
2 After waking up in the morning, the best follow-up action is to get out of bed.(Thanks: WJ.)
15 Infidelity on the part of a man is the result of temptation by a woman who studies evil most every night and who just won't let this good man be.
16 An attractive woman is more likely to be the daughter of the local sheriff than the offpsring of any other profession.
17 A train whistle, heard at night, tends to amplify pre-existing feelings of social isolation among the socially marginalised.
30 And if things are going badly, you're sure to cheer up just as soon as you sing the blues.
