A Latin bugalu

Came across a Latin bugalu by Jose "Joe Cuba" Calderon with the the
title, "T.C.O.B." Sure enough, the English refrain is "You better
T.C.OB./Take care o' business." Never come across that before, only
the "standard" BE usually spelled "TCB," despite my having been an
aficionado of his agrupacion since even before the original BE dance
called the "boogaloo" was developed, let alone the "Latin" version.


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
–Mark Twain

Once that we recognize that we do not err out of laziness, stupidity,
or evil intent, we can uncumber ourselves of the impossible burden of
trying to be permanently right. We can take seriously the proposition
that we could be in error, without necessarily deeming ourselves
idiotic or unworthy.
