She also acknowledged her position as a “white, privileged woman” and the need for the “privileged community” to do more for the black community.

    I know. I couldn't believe it wasn't Ernest Tubb, either. This really is Allen Flatt with That's What She Wrote (1953). Ronnie Pugh, in his book Ernest Tubb: The Texas Troubadour wrote, "Mercury, in fact, became almost a second home for Ernest Tubb imitators, since they also signed Tubb Clone Allen Flatt in 1954, after his earlier discs for Jamboree, Tennessee and Republic. Hal Smith recalls Flatt had live radio programs on WKDA, A Nashville station. Imagine that: Ernest Tubb so popular that he was mimicked in his own city!" Tubb recorded a different tune with the title That's All...

    I was watching some old war movies on Monday, and I am reminded of one with an unforgettable scene but whose title I simply cannot remember. It's set in China, and in the scene I mentioned Philip Ahn (Master Kan from "Kung Fu") is calmly teaching his students as the Japanese bombs fall around them. He asks them what their country is. "Our country is goodness" says one student. "Our country is kindness [or something like that]" says another. "Goodness and kindness [or whatever] make fine countries," he tells them. Anyway the implication is that they are all killed in...
