Jamaican players kept their 5-0 loss to Argentina Sunday in perspective. "Argentina is the strongest team I've ever faced," Jamaican substitute Robert Earle said. "That explains the severe score. For us, this World Cup is still a rich experience. If we didn't learn anything after two matches, we'd have to be stubborn. But we realized that qualifying is only one step. To succeed in the finals is another, and much harder."

In assembling a list of several of the saddest holiday songs ever recorded for Calendar, I preemptively noted that “We can't claim these are definitively the saddest, because there are so many more available to choose from.” Sure enough, readers quickly started citing their own depressive/dysfunctional/downcast holiday favorites that I hadn't singled out: Willie Nelson's “Pretty Paper,” Randy Newman's “Snow,” the Pogues' “Fairytale of...

In November of 1986 I was sent by my company to Johannesburg. The first Saturday I was in South Africa, wanting to see something of the city, the hotel guidebook directed me to the Market area that Scott Kraft talks about ("Street Scenes," Traveling in Style magazine). Within the first 15 minutes out of the car, one man grabbed one arm, another man grabbed the other and a third held his knife to my neck. Although the street was quite crowded, there was no question but that they were completely in control; that there was no danger of their being stopped or apprehended.

Glasvegas "Glasvegas" Columbia Records ** To many American ears, the Scottish band Glasvegas might sound like U2 as fronted by the dad played by Mike Myers in "So I Married an Axe Murderer." But singer James Allan's overwhelming brogue is a formidable instrument that livens up some otherwise boilerplate epic rock on the band's self-titled new album.

Robert Earl believed in celebrity. And parties. He believed that if you put them together--with red caxrpets and spotlights--people would come. More importantly, they'd buy. Not only food, but T-shirts and sweatshirts and $14 baseball caps.

Texas is as thick with talented singer-songwriters as with longhorns, and this veteran, frankly, is just one of the herd--his poetic storytelling has character, but his prosaic music and plain singing don't standout. The best song on his major-label debut is Dave Alvin's "Fourth of July" and the most inviting vocal is from Margo Timmins of Cowboy Junkies, who guests on "Then Came Lo Mein."

It's easy to see why such respected singer-songwriters as Lyle Lovett, Joe Ely and Nanci Griffith have recorded songs by fellow Texan Robert Earl Keen.

His sagas of wild Texas college boys ("The Road Goes on Forever,") and America's obsession with guns ("Sonora's Death Row," "Jesse With the Long Hair . . .
