Re: Rip Helen Reddy

I remember this song from when I was growing up and respect her so much more now as I finally am growing up in regards to social progress, women in general as well as other minority groups, and the celebration of a sweet individual.

Old Mac, whom I remember way back when I was growing up, al;so wrote for modern artists like Bruno Mars: (He wrote the hook in this song:

Whitey Ford
For an American kid, Whitey Ford was a much beloved baseball hero. He still holds records after 16 years with the NY Yankees.

When I was in college, my philosophy teacher got James Randi to come in and discuss skepticism and some of the experiments to debunk in specific dowsing.

It was a 'parapsychology' class, and was taught by another skeptic (Paul Kurtz).

Went to a socially distanced séance and Randi told us he was wrong.

Randi's take downs of Uri Geller were hall of fame worthy. The world is a poorer place after Randi's passing.

And he also went after that total loon faith healer Peter Popoff. The nutjob that used to claim healing powers and divine guidance when in fact, his wife was feeding him information via a radio to a hidden earpiece he had to give the impression that he was divinely inspired.

Popoff declared bankruptcy in the late 80s after he was exposed but sadly, has had a resurgence and still bilks people for millions per year. I guess you just can't fix stupid.
