Singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe South passed away today of heart failure. He was 72.
South is best known for his 1969 hit “Games People Play”. The song won him two Grammys. He also wrote “Rose Garden”, “Down in the Boondocks” and “Hush” which became hits for Lynn Anderson, Billy Joe Royal and Deep Purple, respectively. In addition to his songwriting, South was earned a reputation as a respected session guitar player. His guitar work was featured on Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools”, “Sheila” by Tommy Roe and played on Bob Dylan’s classic album Blonde on Blonde.
South was truly a musician for all seasons.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
