Re: “The ballad of Fred and Yoko

As a longtime/long ago Charleston friend/Beatles fan/record store customer of Billy's (i.e. Fred Arnold), I was very moved by your beautifully written story, Will.

I had completely lost touch with the man by the late '70s and was dismayed to read how badly south his life had gone since, no matter how much he may have contributed to it himself. Appalling to see how little assistance he received from most of the Little Rock community, particularly those who espouse their Christian values - Christian when convenient, apparently. A salute to Pastor Marty Mote, however, for being there for Billy when he could.

Billy was quite the character in '70s Charleston society, and became a colorful counterpoint to a lot of what conservative Charleston was then all about.

Thanks again for the story, Will. I look forward to reading more of your work down the line.
