Singer-songwriter R.B. Greaves passed away in late September of prostate cancer. He was 68.
I was not aware that he had died until last night when I was watching a YouTube video of him performing his big hit, “Take a Letter Maria” which reached number two on the Billboard charts in 1969.
The nephew of the late Sam Cooke, Greaves also enjoyed minor hits with covers of Bacharach & David’s “Always Something There to Remind Me” (which became a much bigger hit for Naked Eyes in the early 1980s), Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade of Pale” as well as James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain” before disappearing from the public limelight.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
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?
