5. Let's hope she has good healthcare since she voted to strip many Americans of theirs.

Glad she's doing okay, tho.

6. Too bad, sorry to hear that

Glad she will recover.

I was never all that big of a C & W fan, but she is one of the few I've always liked.

11. Van Lear Rose with Jack White...

...is a good record, IMO.

Here's "Portland, Oregon" from that album:



I understand that LL is a republican, like Alice Cooper.

But I cannot deny that they have both done some great music.

Unlike Ted Nugent.

If I had the power, I woulda let Ted have the stroke instead of Loretta.
