Re: “A note in passing on the great Bob Lancaster

Lancaster here. I remember Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller one time responded in his awkward way to an enthusiastic introduction by his running mate Footsie Britt: "Thank you, Footsie, for all those great things you said about all the great things I've done." Your nice wellwishes on this thread reminded me of that, and I appreciate them perhaps more than you know. Thanks even to Verla Sweere for keeping perspective on the thing by remembering for us all some bringdown something that of course never happened. A floater in the punchbowl is never inappropriate. Seldom welcome but not inappropriate.

Re: “Huckabee mansion rising in Florida UPDATE

Looks like the bro.-gov. has forgot ALL the Scriptures he once claimed to live by, including the one about the peril of building your house on the sand.

Surely you don't consider Sister a better musician than Louis Jourdan, J.T.
