    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Yeah, it's more bluesy.

    A moment's reflection please, to note the passing of a folk hero.

    Merle Haggard Dies

    He left the world a better place for having lived.

    I didn't like either of them either. I expected something quite different on a tribute thread to Merle Haggard. My grandpa & uncles who did Country when it WAS Country would probably be mortified.

    He was definitely one of the Great American songwriters, and always a pleasure to hear in concert.
    I had the pleasure of listening to him at the Ryman.

    He had so many great songs. I loved Today I started Loving You again. Here's a clip that shows his great sense of humor.
