Yankee Doodle was a Macoroni. One of the mysterious lyrical conundrums of my time. DOH! Never understood the connotation.

Rubin “Hurricane” Carter passed away, I am reminded of a song, from an artist that people said didn’t care about others because at times he did what he wanted artistically as well as personally, that helped bring Mr. Carter’s case and bid for justice into the public eye, and possibly played a factor in his release from prison. Just returned from singer song writer night at rosendale cafe. good time. good music.
