    No fan of ghosts, but The Doors were my first "favorite" band. Not everyone's cup of tea, but if I like them, they have to be good. I skipped school for a couple of days in my teens to sit in the bowling alley and read " No One Here Gets Out Alive." I had visions of becoming a drunken poet. Still not too late, I guess.

    I recall my high school English teacher giving me a hard time for reading that book during a study hall he monitored. "You can do better than that," he told me.

    Hmmm ... let's see ... who got more mileage (and more chicks) out of his poetry: Jim Morrison or my old, bitter high school English teacher?

    Case closed.

    Maybe Morrison made more money, but I'd say odds are your English teacher had more talent.

    Yeah, he had a talent for showing movies during class and falling asleep while we pretended to watch.

    Not a bad way to spend an hour each day of my senior year, though.

    And yes, I too liked the Doors in the high school. I always thought of them as the anti-Beach Boys*

    * sad truth: Now I enjoy listening to old Beach Boys albums, especially from "Pet Sounds" through the late 1960s. Yeah, I'm an old guy.
