On the back bumper of a truck I saw this morning delivering produce to Lucky market:

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Poor Emma Goldman had to be deported because of what other mooks did. Ayn Rand, now that's a dangerous person. Economic terrorism is what we should really be focusing on. Hey Frank, Learn something new everyday in a place like this... I didn't even know who Emma Goldman was until I saw your remark ...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Actually, I think he was pointing out that "finding Jesus" is not a cure. Most of these folks only stop indulging substance abuse and take up substantive abuse. They're still assholes, only now they're "forgiven" and see no reason to take responsibility. Yes, that is EXACTLY wha...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Great idea, but who knows what the Sinatra estate "mulls doing". What this brings to mind is something like Ella Fitzgerald's "Twelve Nights in Hollywood".

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

In the end, he says the only thing that helped was finding God. Well, to be honest, it's just a matter of trading one addiction for another. I won't bother anybody here with my own history with alcoholism (not me, but the MANY friends and relatives who suffered with it), but I've seen my share of &...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Hey Finderdougie, I gots me BOTH those albums from the Sands, and they are WONDERFUL! Sinatra and Basie were really dealing it! If you want to fill a trifecta, I highly recommend Nat King Cole at the Sands as well, recorded around 1960. Brilliant!

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Hey Frank, that's a later recording, I think from 1960, with Duke Ellington and orchestra backing Basie. It's fabulous as well, but this earlier recording that I just got is from 1955 and is Basie with his own group. Both recordings are super, but I prefer the neater tighter performance that Basie g...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

I knew Peter Coyote back in the 1990's when I coached his boy in baseball. Coyote was a great guy, never demanded anything, never questioned what I was doing, gave his kid plenty of positive reinforcement without unnecessary expectations, and stayed in the background. The ideal "little league d...

Re: Actors I Miss

Hmmm, actors... I really miss my two childhood favorites, Roy Rogers and Red Skelton. The former I think was the dad I wished I had, confident without ever being cocky, country smart without being condescending, honest and trustworthy without being cloying. In my Walter Mitty world, he just seemed r...

Re: Whatcha listening to?

Just acquired the download of the reissue of Count Basie's 1955 album "April in Paris". The opening title cut is a masterpiece, of course, and then "Corner Pocket" follows, wow, and it's just friggin' amazing to the very last. I am shocked, SHOCKED, that it took me all these year...
