I might have to pull out Jackson Browne's "For Everyman" to see if the 
last line is from "Take it Easy" made famous by the Eagles. It does 
sound vaguely familiar. Check it out for yourself:


Now, since that song (although the Amazon site indicates the CD was 
published in 1990 the vinyl album was issued in 1973)  was written BI 
but AA (Before Internet but After Arpanet) I would have to say that that 
line, at least, is OT although it may be applicable.

In  an intersting way the lyrics are very much on topic because if you 
do a google search on:

        "take it easy" "don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you 

you get 1120 hits, the second of which takes you to a www page which gives you step by step instructions to turn off your popuup and active x blocker so the www server can download a nice active-x control on your pc so you can read the lyrics and maybe get some other things for which you did not ask. So...............

here is the url to that site
