He had a great voice.

I didn’t like it and always suspected it was a bit of a put on for radio but I wanted to at least try for one sentence not to speak ill of the dead.

Stripper Annabel Battistella --- aka, "Fanne Foxe" --- died just four days before her 85th birthday.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/fanne-foxe-dies/2021/02/24/87c04e6e-5e4c-11ea-b014-4fafa866bb81_story.html

Her liaison with Congressman Wilbur Mills (Democrat - Arkansas) in 1974 later brought down his career in 1976. At the time, he was the Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee.

Interesting. I knew about the shooting. Big news here at the time. Didn't know the CNN story.

Quote:
Jordan was nearly killed by a racist’s bullet outside the Marriott in Fort Wayne in May 1980. He was left seriously hurt. As he was recovering, then-President Jimmy Carter visited Jordan. It was the first story ever broadcast on CNN.

I posted about his death on some music boards and my social media. I write a series called The Cassette Chronicles so obviously Lou Ottens is responsible for me being able to do that.

Elgin Baylor was the single most significant and exciting pro player to spark my love of basketball. As for aerobatic, hang-time high-flyers, before MJ there was Dr. J, and before Dr. J there was Elgin, and before Elgin there was . . . no one.

After more than 60 years, the 6-5 Baylor is still third in the NBA for career PPG and 10th in career RPG. The nine players ahead of Baylor on the rebounding list all played center at least part of the time.
