~ So far Valentine’s Day is not half tragic. I think everyone should be in relationship limbo on Valentine’s Day. As Bob said, no woman, no cry. I think the song is about something else entirely (like telling his wife to stop her blubbering after he backhanded her), but I always took it to be like a romance  “no castles, no hassles” aphorism. I should look the lyrics up online.

~ I got a valentine from Bonnie Raitt. She sent me cupcakes in a cute little heart-covered chinese take-out box. They were clearly so saturated with red dye they were highly carcinogenic, but I didn’t care — tasty dinner. Thanks Bonnie!

    Actually, I just read Rita Marley’s auobiography, and I think the song refers to when Bob had had his fifth kid with another woman, and it too was given to Rita to raise, along with the five that were born to her.
