By the way, does anyone else get irked by those Chevrolet and GM employee discount commercials during a holiday season in which 16,000 of them are being layed off and three plants are being closed? I try my best not to be cranky and reactionary but I can' help but wonder how many of the employees speaking the commercials are soon to be jobless. As a former federal employee and union member, I'm a tad touchy about layoffs, downsizing and shutdowns (having endured 4). I grew weary of hearing about the plight and insecurity of the white middle class in 2016 while no one was mentioning the economic state of so many working class and poor people of color. Sorry to discuss such issues on the holiday; it's not very Christian of me. Lastly, Pmac and le Roi, bonne année, and athbhliain faoi mhaise dhaoibh and the best of new years to Gus, Lazz, Poppachubby. and everyone else! May 2019 bring health and joyous times to us all!

OH! I just now saw this news about KC, and please let him know that I'm in his corner just like all the rest. Your blog is fantastic and the liner notes are the very best. Wayyyy back when, I found every way possible to work my way into the old Hippodrome Theatre here in Richmond. Never were there better days and it's only your blog that brings it all back to life. Draping an arm over your shoulder, KC, and pulling for your wonderful self to get back to all of us. xxxx

Dropped by to see if there was any news on KC's health. He has always been so good to everyone with his posts and wonderful liner notes. Reading his thoughts has been almost like sitting across the table. Hoping he is recouping and knowing that there are so many out here that honestly care how he is, and I'm one of them.
