Friendly Persuasion



The reference to the Quakers in my last post led me to thinking about the film "Friendly Persuasion", which starred Gary Cooper and in 1960 merited a few Academy Award nominations, including one for Best Music (for this song, "Thee I Love", sung by Pat Boone). Forty years ago, I knew every word to each song on this album.

Hope you find this You Tube thingie charming, or at least amusing. The movie was lovely - I recommend it highly.

Back in the real world - 2008 - I just finished watching Scott McClellan on Countdown. It really is stunning - even when you think you know it all. More on that tomorrow...

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
