    Merle Haggard

    I've been youtubing for an hour reminding myself that Merle Haggard can justifiably be called the World's Finest Entertainer, and the reason he can do that is the quality of his writing, the quality of his delivery and the idealism he still manages to convey after all these years of outrage.

    What a guy.

    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.

    I don't think you can hold that against him, he grew into the name over several centuries.

    Re: Merle Haggard

    I'm allowed to acknowledge his lifetime achievement founded on what appears to have been a cataclysmic rough start. He's an inspiration. On top of that I love his sense of humor, his style and his lyrics.

    In some ways his songs remind me of another great songwriter/performer, Terry Allen, whom I associate with Lubbock Texas but who might be based elsewhere by now.

    If you don't know Terry Allen you could just come out and say so.

    He was born in the town I am at the moment. Wichita, Ks.

    But I have to admit that I googled him.

    Try one. I don't believe anyone could write this without knowing the attraction. Terry Allen - Southern Comfort

    It must be ten years ago I bought that CD.






    eta: If you like that you could even try Terry Allen - Helena Montana

    I tried them both. Didn't make it through either of them. Not that I don't like a little country music, but not my cup tea.
