Politics, Food, and Good Music

This week’s column is now up, and Jim talks about the flack Barrack Obama is receiving over his comments that rural America is bitter over their economic plight, and take comfort in religion and guns. Is he off track? Read what Jim has to say. And take the political quiz listed in the column. YOU might be surprised as to your “tastes.”

Also, check out Jim’s radio show beginning this Sunday on WRNO (99.5fm) from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm. The Pope is in our country, yet they are closing catholic churches in New Orleans. One of the reasons is the lack on priests. So is it time to let priests marry? That’s just one of many topics you can here Jim talk about on Sunday.

There are some special people profiled on my home page this week. Go to the music box on the left. If you’ve never listened to Eva Cassidy sing, you really missed a special voice. She died of cancer at 33 years old, her music is timeless, and she still sells many CDs all over the world. No one is saying this “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” any better. You can hear her and see her on you to at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUwTdqPkluY.

Also, I would urge you to spend a few minutes listening to the last lecture of Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch. This was truly a one-of-a-kind at last lecture, for posh has cancer, and was giving his final words to his class. It would be an understatement to say that his last words were anything but inspirational.

    I must say, I saw a special on Eva Cassidy several years ago on one of ABC’s late night shows. The lady was beautiful. And her voice angelic. I immediately went out and bought what CD’s Icould find of hers. Apparently, Jim likes “Over the Rainbow”. I personally LOVE her rendition of “What a Wonderful World”…the last song it is said she sang in public before she died of cancer. Utterly amazing. Also, her “Live at Blues Alley” CD is wonderful.
