An uncle of mine died on the 10th. He was the youngest of my father’s 4 brothers. He had, I believe, Hodgekins lymphoma.

I made a comment at Facebook.

I was over at the Sun Forums and I saw a reply to my complaint that Florida was being ignored by some prominent musicians, like Springsteen, David Bowie and Patti Smith. I was undressed by on rock fan who noted that Springsteen had been to Florida often, every year I think for the past 8 years or something, but what I had meant was that Bruce, David and Patti had never appeared in the O’Connel Center, the colliseum in Gainesville, Florida on the University of Florida campus which has hosted Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and the Who. Elton John has also appeared in Gainesville, but canceled his last promised engagement.

A lot of Bruce Hornsby lyrics keep rolling through my mind. I don’t think he has been here either though Billy Joel has, playing in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts as one of his last gigs. He was going on to classical music from there he said.

I just wondered at the Forum if musical tastes had suffered thanks to a general closed mindedness here.
