Once upon a time in Mississippi….

There was an FM radio station called ZZQ. It was so much more than a radio station, it was a touch stone for people who loved rock music.

In a time when most cars came equipped with AM radios, ZZQ led the market. They sold bucket loads of FM converters to baby boomers who wanted to stay connected with the times. There were no “play lists” to get in the way, just the music and the radio personalities.

Even now, it’s hard for me to listen to Dan Fogelberg, or Jackson Browne, and not think about the heyday of the music scene in Jackson, or that morning about 25 years ago when I turned on the radio and heard country music coming from 102.9. It was like I lost a good friend.

Uncle Dave, this one’s for you.

Clinton Chief Strategist Mark Penn Steps Down

The manager of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign says Mark Penn has asked to give up his role as chief strategist of the campaign.

Campaign manager Maggie Williams issued a statement Sunday saying the action comes after what she referred to as “the events of the last few days.”

Williams says Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, Inc. will continue to provide polling and advice to the campaign.

She also says Geoff Garin and Howard Wolfson “will coordinate the campaign’s strategic message team going forward.”

Well.  Who didn’t see this one coming?

R.I.P Charlton Heston! You Will Be Missed!

The following quote is a statement from the family of Charlton Heston.

“To his loving friends, colleagues and fans, we appreciate your heartfelt prayers and support. Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life. He was known for his chiseled jaw, broad shoulders and resonating voice, and, of course, for the roles he played. Indeed, he committed himself to every role with passion, and pursued every cause with unmatched enthusiasm and integrity.

We knew him as an adoring husband, a kind and devoted father, and a gentle grandfather, with an infectious sense of humor. He served these far greater roles with tremendous faith, courage and dignity. He loved deeply, and he was deeply loved.

No one could ask for a fuller life than his. No man could have given more to his family, to his profession, and to his country. In his own words, “I have lived such a wonderful life! I’ve lived enough for two people.”


Also, there is this article from the LATimes, with a look at his accomplishments.
For my part, he was one of my favorite actors. His parts and performances, in some of the most epic movies ever made, were powerful, sensitive, thought provoking, and entertaining. I can remember wanting to stand up and cheer when he vanquished his opponent in the chariot race from Ben Hur, and I could feel his spirituality in his performance as Moses. His efforts in promoting civil rights, whether fighting for actors in Hollywood as the President of the actors union, marching with Martin Luther King, or as President of the National Rifle Association, he always gave of himself for worthy causes. Mr. Heston, by his behavior and conduct, was a man, and I feel sorrow for his passing, for his loving family, and for the loss of such a strong role model for our society.
God Speed Mr. Heston, thank you for all you have done. Your rest is well earned.
