Dear Dolly, We Love You!

There's something amazing on NPR Music today, and I'm afraid I'm going to blow all the rest of the day's deadlines as I dig into it.

My love for Dolly is well-documented on this site, though, sadly, no one on the music staff asked me to comment on my favorite Dolly song, "A Christmas To Remember." But I'm sure that's just because somehow it's not included on the box set, which is a real oversight (I'm only half kidding!).

Don't tell my former employers, but in college, I used to shelve books, and I was really fast at it, so on days when there wasn't a ton to do, I'd sneak into the stacks and pull out Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business for a few stolen minutes. I love the woman, and I'm guessing you do too. So head over and dig in, and let Dolly take your day off-track for a little while.
