    It’s encouraging to see Willie taking a strong stand.

    It's encouraging to see Willie standing at all. He must be near 90 yrs old?

    My late friend Barry had a dream.

    His dreams were always sort of cinematic.

    The scene opens at the first glint of dawn, and in the back-lit distance a column of black SUVs approaches.

    As they quarter northward toward the camera, the camera pulls back and pans North to reveal that they are approaching a town.

    A town with a square and a tower and a statue of Willie Nelson in the middle of it all.

    The SUVs enter stage left, make a turn to the South, and continue their progress toward their mysterious goal.


    You still rock Barry, wherever you may be.

    Cute, but will it matter?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Willie's 85, and holding up amazingly well.

    Willie is apparently getting a lot of pushback from the redneck side of his fanbase. Or at least the loudmouth and clueless part.

    Did they actually listen to his music?



    The Democrats should ask if they can make that their theme song.

    yeah, if you didn't know which way Willie's politics go, you aren't a fan you are just somebody who likes a tune or two of his.

    Send Beto money, I did. I think he can knock off Cruz, that King-hell Miserable Creature.

    Beto and Cruz will have three debates. They should be interesting...
