Chet Atkins & Don McLean – Vincent

I saw Chet Atkins many years ago during the Spoleto USA Festival in Charleston, SC. It was like sitting with 1200 friends listening to your favorite uncle tell stories and play guitar. A magical evening.

Now It Means Nothing

In today’s Manchester (NH) Union-Leader: Gore’s Prize: A Fraud on the People.

A taste:

Alfred Nobel felt horrible about the uses to which his invention — dynamite — was put.

Al Gore has done exactly none of those things.

Go and Read for it says what I think.
