Bashar Al-Assad didn't need demonizing by anyone. He's a stone-cold monster. 
 

And the same has been said of numerous American Presidents over the years too.  

What about the Syrian people? 

How many tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands or millions of Syrians are you willing to 'waste' in order to get Al-Assad out?

Big fan of Fisk. 

Did not follow his writings on Syria closely but if he refused to demonize the Assad regime, then I agree.   Demonizing Assad and pro-longing the civil war has resulted in all kinds of suffering.   Not American or Turkish suffering.   Syrian suffering.

Damn. That hurts. And two back to back? Damn.

Billy Joe Shaver lived his songs. He was one tough customer. I'm glad he came back after his son died, what a tragedy and a waste. Damn, that was 20 years ago!

I get a kick out of OCMS. They're not the same kind of music as Ray's gang, but they have the same dedication to 'old timey' stuff. No surprise he'd be at their show.

Well, not so much a preamble, as a 2.5 minutes in amble. {#Shifty}

The day he died, Old Crow Medicine Show played here at Nutty Brown Cafe - big outdoor venue. Ray Benson was there - he had heard the news. At some point Ray joined OCMS on stage - did not reveal what he knew, out of respect to JJW's family - and led a full-blast 'Mr. Bojangles'. I think it's on Nutty Brown's twitter feed(?) 
He is sorely missed.

Ps: 'Mr Bojangles' is a true story, right down to the dog. He was white (jails were segregated) and used 'Bojangles' to hide his identity(?) And maybe honor Bill Robinson too.
