I am listening to an “unreleased” audiophile copy of Abbey Road as I type this. It’s different enough to bring out things I’ve never heard, and I’m a man who knows his Abbey Road. Why’s it unreleased? I don’t know, t’was Dr. Ebbett told me so. How do I know Dr. Ebbet was right? I’m a afraid you are a wicked girl. Good Night.
Dr. King’s passing saddens me, as it usually does this time of year. Bobby Kennedy (who had ok’d the FBI’s surveillance of King’s more… secular pastimes) was knocked out of his shoes two months later. Now we have another charismatic young Hero who speaks of hope… without fear. I hope he wins, and I hope he lives. Odds aren’t great for the latter.
Take a gander at the account of Dr. King’s death from the mouth of one of the guys with him when he died.
