Who's the Pretender? 

If state Senator Steve Cohen should succeed in his current bid to represent the 9th Congressional District, he can give part of the credit to world-class musical worthies Jackson Brown and J.D. Souther, who showed up at attorney Leslie Ballin’s house for a well-attended fundraiser on Cohen’s behalf last Saturday night. The senator, as we hear it, won’t be Running on Empty, having raised upwards of $50,000 on the occasion. Cohen chimed in on a chorus of his late friend Warren Zevon’s song, “Werewolves of London.” A valiant enough effort, but, if he wins, Cohen would be well advised to hold on to the congressional seat as his day job.
