Not only was he funny and good he was also a Christian. Good man.

Chorus.

More serious version.

The federal government will treat astronaut Sally Ride's same-sex partner of 27 years as a legal stranger, having to pay taxes on commonly owned property, not eligible for her Social Security or other federal benefits that the widows of other astronauts receive, etc.
So, if you don't think marriage equality is important, think again...

One of the original Seldom Scene, Mike Auldridge has died. To me, he was the very best Dobro player ever. The Seldom Scene had strong Lexington roots, John Starling from here as the original lead singer/guitar, and the Scene in all its incarnations appearing every summer at the Theater at Lime Kiln.

Washington Post Obituary

Precious moments for those of us lucky enough to have been there.

Mike Auldridge steps forward at 6:35

Former White House pooch dies

(CNN) - President George W. Bush's Scottish Terrier Barney has died, the former president said in a statement Friday. He was 12 and had been suffering from lymphoma.

But Barney lives on, in a sense.

Positional Asphyxia and the heavy hand of the Po-po?

Postby Crux » 2013 Feb 19 08:15

I laud the police. I want the government and the police to be reflections of our better selves, and they have a tough job,
but the troubling death of Robert Ethan Saylor, a 26 year old man with Down's Syndrome is a tragedy. Could it have been prevented? Saylor would not leave the theater after his movie was over, wanting to watch it again. He apparently didn't understand the need to buy another ticket... Robert was not equipped to deal with the world on his own, and his fellow mankind let him down perhaps. It is not perfectly clear, and there will be an investigation. This story catches my eye because I truly believe the Police and the Government, who work for us, are more polite and restrained if they are a reflection of an armed and polite society, and are aware they must respect the armed and polite citizenry.

No guns were involved, although the Police are in authority and have guns. Were they negligent? Law enforcement officers get training on positional asphyxia, and those with big bellies and mental illness are particularly vulnerable. R.E.Saylor was known by his fellow parishioners as the best hugger. No more. Rest in peace Robert. I ask you, what is the lesson here. Will we ever get answers or come to the right conclusions about this incident?

It just hit me harder than Bush's dog Barney is all...

Sudden in-custody death syndrome, or the heavy hand of off duty Deputies working their second job as Security? Sad...

I grew up listening to George's music (my Dad didn't care for much music outside of country). I have no regrets.......George still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Hmmmmm.....in the blink of an eye.

In the wee hours of this morning, I watched a Frost interview on Al Jazeera America. It was a fabulous piece about the Israel/Palestine "peace" process. he really was quite the interviewer.
