Tell Me Why

I noticed the no-longer-new Indigo Girls CD this morning when I was buying Margaret her New York Times at Whole Foods, and I figured I might buy the album from Amazon this afternoon. When I went to the “buy this album” button, Amazon insisted that I download their special downloading utility despite the fact that I already have the most up-to-date version of that same utility installed on my laptop — the same ^%$#^%$ utility that I had to download last time I wanted to buy an album from them, and that was the same downloader that I had to download the time before.
Plus, Amazon sells the recent Bob Dylan album for $9.99, but each of the individual tracks costs only $0.99. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks as though they want to charge you an extra nine cents just for the convenience of buying the whole album.
I’ll tell you if I like the Indigo Girls album, but for the time being it’s getting off to an irritated start.
