NOW... THAT'S AN AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD MOURN!
As far as I'm concerned Ray Charles...
- Never raised taxes for the working class and made the rich more wealthy than they were already.
- Never sold weapons or gave aid to foreign leaders (many of them tyrants) that would later become our enemies.
- Never bombed contries around the world and never killed innocent people.
And for those who think Mr. Ray Charles wasn't patriotic enough, then perhaps they should listen "America The Beautiful".
Ray Charles dedicated his lifetime to create beautiful music and he influenced a handful of great artists.
Unlike Reagan, Ray Charles has a special place in heaven.
I quite liked some of the man's music. But one story that made me smile was when he was asked about his backing singers, The Raylets, and how someone became one.
He said, "To become a Raylet, you have to let Ray!!!"
