I always try to post a little ...
George and Patty--I think I see Eric Clapton lurking in the shadows on that video.
He supposedly wrote that song with Ray Charles in mind, not for Patty, as many thought.
Many years ago, my friend, who was guitarist for a band I was in, called me from a museum he was working at. A Beatles collection had just arrived, and my friend was (quietly) strumming George's 360 Rickenbacker to this tune over the phone. As he and I were both mega-Beatles nuts, he won the one-upmanship with that.
Republican pundits are now calling this the "Obama recession"?!
Seriously. They think we're idiots, don't they?
BTW, I'm back, and I blogged. :-)
