Glen Campbell has Alzheimer's disease.

Like A Rhinestone, uh ...duh

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

Glen Campbell might be worth a bash

He was diagnosed with alzheimer's about a year ago. He's winding up his farewell tour. He's got a few more years left in him.

It's always funny until someone gets hurt, and then it's hilarious.

I'd probably wait until around 2016 before I put him on any lists. His buddies Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan lasted a while with the same disease.

His name came up inevitably among the DDP entries today and I thought of 'Wichita Lineman'. What a great song that is...

Back on topic, I always liked Glen's music although it wasn't something I told a lot of people.

Personal favorites were Galveston and Dreams of the Everyday Housewife(which is quite very touching)

See, I love DotEH, but the fact he wasn't adverse to giving Tanya Tucker the occasional slap around the chops makes the song a little... harder to stomach.

So, it's up there with wife-beating David Soul's touching "Let's Have a Quiet Night In"



Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

Unlike the Kasem case I side with the wife here _The daughter doesnt seem to realise how hard it is to look after someone with Alzheimers especially when they can still move about like Glen!It would also be disorientating to move him yet again .

"Liberal" genius to-do list:

1. Call anti-Islam campaigners Nazis.

2. Label Winston Churchill, the guy without whom Europe would have become 100% Nazi, "outdated and imperialist" etc., and smirk as people get arrested for citing his views of Islam.

(3. Lurkingly and creepily use internet powers that were granted to you in more peaceful care-free times to arbitrarily censor and threaten people with opinions you don't like, much like a middle-of-the-night raid on opposition by 1930s Nazi street thugs)
