Good news, bad news, and it’s still a bad song


Thanks for allowing me to have this space each week for several years. I never meant to offend anyone — well, OK sometimes I did.

I think the two things that offended people most were my wisecracks about John Wayne’s acting and my dim view of the song “Okie from Muskogee” — but let’s be honest, Wayne couldn’t act, and I can’t help it, I really do hate that song.

God bless. See you around.
