What an amazing piece!
" so it could also have been just some generic white dude." ?
Nice nod to a tremendous man and the impact he had on the music we love. Thanks.
Phil owned a building on Broadway and kept an office there. In the 1980s, my husband worked for a company that rented the rest of the building. Phil and my husband hit it off, maybe because they were both from Chicago, and used to regularly to go lunch together.
It was really cool to visit with Phil in his office and see all his gold and platinum records on the wall. We never thought we would run into such Chicago music history in Tucson!
You playing tennis!!?? I'd pay to see that!
I think I get it here: irony happens when the Republican "base" is so angry, so shortsighted, so backward, and quite simply so damn dumb that they vote in the primaries for the ONLY person that will most disadvantageously lose to Hillary Clinton. With the possible exception of T Cruz, I think ANY one of the other guys had bona fides enough to win the general election this year. Trump may be rich (on paper), but he is so lacking in integrity that the ball won't bounce his way - ever again.
Hillary Clinton is the most prepared, qualified person for president in a long, long time. She's not perfect-- who is? Everyone running for anything has a few skeletons in the closet.
Shouldn't that be "Chauncey Gardner"?
I find myself nodding, nearly in agreement, with Danehy. He appears to recognize that Clinton is a seriously deeply flawed candidate who has earned the distrust of a majority of voters. And I can't argue with anyone who sees Trump, not the Republicans or conservatives in general, as a bombastic fool, an indictment of our system of selecting presidential candidates.
"People who want viable third-party candidates should come up with viable third parties." Really? We obviously do not have viable political parties (unless the term refers to sharks and cockroaches). We have two inbred mega-organizations representing the political interests of minorities of voters surviving on the largesse of the most wealthy and powerful.
How about viable (like adaptable and strong) Democrat and Republican parties as a first step? I've been around long enough to say I've never seen a presidential election offering two choices, one worse than the other, to slither from the pit and take the reins of power.
And lousy presidents.
Come on everybody take a look at today's leak John Podesta and the HRC crew were discussing how to get rid of the President's emails on her private server. He said he never was involved and didn't know anything about it. He had the address and they talked about hiding them...and then 33,000 emails were bleach bitted.
This makes it appear the President lied again. he also told us he had to give Iran cash as we were not setup to wire transfer money. Now we find out he wire transferred money.
Meanwhile Iran makes aggressive moves towards our destroyers in the Gulf. Raytheon missiles were fired on Wednesday.
Barack and Hillary. Birds of a feather, make great liars.
"People who want viable third-party candidates should come up with viable third parties."
Otherwise we are voting for the most deceptive Clinton yet? That makes no sense.
The country was in trouble any way? What a campaign theme.
Agreed that the Green Party has failed to become a viable force in electoral politics at the national level, although it has succeeded in some smaller jurisdictions around the country. However, your flippant dismissal of Jill Stein's arrest warrant bears closer inspection.
She was arrested at Standing Rock, in solidarity with hundreds of tribal nations that have gathered to resist the domination of the fossil fuel industry and the damage that its stupid, dangerous, and fundamentally unnecessary pipeline would do to their water, health, cultural integrity, sacred ground, and ancestral graves.
If more politicians had the kind of spine Jill Stein has--you know, integrity, utilitarian values, commitment to principle, courage to stand up to corporations rather than kowtowing to them, all the things Billary Clinton lacks--then we would not be in the mess we are in.
You don't have to vote for Ms. Stein, but you could at least show her the respect she has earned.
So true! You may be fooling college kids, but not the hardworking American taxpayers that have to support all her nonsense. No more years of Obama.
Mr Danehy, I read this column and found myself asking, what has happened to our country? Twenty years ago the Democratic party was defending Bill Clinton from charges of WH sex, which he lied about, even under oath. But the party faithful said, "that was his personal life, and it is in his past." What has changed sir? What has changed is the hatred that now dominates political reaction.
The media has stopped reporting and become either a cheerleader or an enabler to turn the opposition into a villian. Do you remember journalism school at all? What are you doing?
You have taken the bait that the HRC team has thrown out there and run with it. Rather than talk about real, serious issues that confront our country, you want to talk about sex and cast aspersions on someones character. Why didn't you do the same to Bill Clinton? It is blatant hypocrisy. Is Hillary only a worthy candidate because she is female? That is very dangerous.
Had you paid attention to the real issues you would know why Hillary Clinton set up a private server in her basement. She did not want Americans to know what she was doing.
1. She works with a group that is planning to overthrow the Catholic Church. Remember that Separation Clause you always like to defend?
2. She has a plan for a borderless country where anybody can come and go as they please. READ THE EMAILS. She encourages the increase in minimum wage while she floods the country with immigrants. This will not work any better than the Affordable Care Act.
3. She despises average Americans, and then adds "needy latinos" and blacks that do not successfully integrate.
4. She has made the world increasingly dangerous. Hundreds of women and children are being slaughtered in Allepo, and she can only think about a cut and run strategy of relocating them all to the US because of her inability to deal with Bashar al-Assad.
5. The email server was used to hide activities from the public. She supports Obama's plan of doing everything by executive order, in effect, giving us a dictatorship. Did you take Civics in high school?
While Podesta and the Clinton Foundation people continue to claim the Russians have hacked them, they have not denied one email. Not even the one calling Gov Richardson of NM a *&$!.
Why is that?
You sir, need to take a good long look in the mirror. See any truth?
It's so easy for the intelligent to simply call Wrong, Again a racist.
It's so easy for the ignorant to simply call someone a racist.
Tom does not like Trump? What a shock, who would have guessed? It seems imminent that Clinton will win. The only thing worse than having that monster as president is that we all will miss out on the meltdown Danehy would have had if Trump won.
All she has to do is tell the truth...and she can't. At least republicans turned on their party. Dems had a chance with Bernie, but couldn't make a simple decision and think for themselves. Just wait until you see what an international joke they become.
Most fun article I have read since this election campaign began. That was this year, right??
