Composed by Verdi in 1841, about the Hebrew slaves held by Nebuchkadnezzar, in the opera Nabucco, I have two versions with special meaning. one by the Greek chanteuse Nana Mouskouri, who recorded it in several languages but my favorite here in Spanish, and an especially poignant version here, sung by a South Korean Church Choir, our prayer for the Koreans still held in bondage north of the 38th parallel.
The election of Donald Trump almost ten months ago proved, not suggested, but proved, the irrelevance of the mainstream media. I didn’t think we had to …
ITEM: The University of Maryland marching band has only this week dispensed with playing the state song, which they say is pro-confederacy and openly racist. …
Media Bored With Human Tragedy in Texas, Without Politics
In many respects the devastation of Hurricane Harvey around Houston has been more destructive of property than in decades. But few people have died. And the emergency responders, at every level, federal, state, local and volunteers, have been splendid. Almost error free. Worse, Democrats and Republicans have cooperated with one another. Texans. More than that, Harvey has provided a great insight into the Media, the Democrats, and the Left, when nothing political is to be gained.

So rise and shine. Exsultate Jubilate!
Get out there and commit those souls to perdition.
In Memory of Dick Gregory, my personal “Old Rivers”, 1962
From 1962, word-pictures not uncommon anywhere in the South. Don’t believe everything you read in modern history books, and nothing you hear from the Media.
In Memory of Dick Gregory, who was my Old Rivers in 1963, and who died yesterday at age 84. Like Steve Bannon today, he was a star in Rev Martin Luther King’s crown, and remembered here in my tribute to liberal hypocrisy, Bob Beckel and a kid named Lester Motley, who used to sleep over from time to time.
If you don’t have anything better to do, listen, read a little, then pause and reflect.
