Glossary dates from a time when thumb-braking in a dictionary resulted in band names. The 'ol pre-plural nouns era. Though I've dug some of their Thin Lizzy-isms, "Drive By Truckers" is one of the worst band names of all time. Rank it up there with "Ha Ha Tonka" AND "Glossary." AND "State Bird." Come on, people, put a little more into it. And if someone gives their business an ironic name, they deserve to fail. You don't see "Seize the Clay" tearing up Poplar Avenue any more, do you? Or "Tut Uncommon Gifts" (sic?) having a parking problem over Madison and Tucker? I seriously doubt there's any irony in "Minglewood Hall." I would hope not.
