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...
