I heard the great Frankie Laine sing Sunny Side of the Street on Parky today and found a vid of him. Frankie Laine died last month, aged 93. He was born the same year as my mother. Mom was a musician in her own right (she played drums) and thought Frankie was one of the best song stylists around.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
