It’s not often you hear the name of a customer in a song, but I just did. Somewhere between sit-up 21 and 22 of set 2 of 8, I heard this in the Drive By Truckers “Never Gonna Change:”

“The ATF and the ABI got
everything they could take.
Take it from me…
They didn’t take it from me.”

The “ABI” is the Alabama Bureau of Investigation and they were an AFIS customer of mine when I worked for NEC. That’s pretty much all I’ve got for ya… Hey, it’s a holiday weekend! Oh, alright. Here’s the video and some more lyrics of the song…

“There ain’t much difference in the man
I wanna be and the man I really am.
We ain’t never gonna change.”
