Dennis Edwards passed away on February 1, 2018
While I was checking for information on John Barlow, I noticed that Dennis Edwards, lead singer for the Temptations had passed away last week. Edwards replace David Ruffin as the lead singer in 1968 when Ruffin became unpredictable and started missing gigs. After his firing, Ruffin would occasionally show up and try to crash the stage during Temptations concerts.

Edwards was battling meningitis at the time of his death and died in a Chicago hospital 2 days before his 75th birthday.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man. We've got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. Neil Young, Rockin' in the Free World.

Worrying about the "browning of America" is not racism. -- Faith

I hate you all, you hate me -- Faith
