Here’s a “coming of age” song for me…it struck a nerve the first time I lived in Chicago, before I was married and going to college for the first time. This music video (remember, this was before MTV) precedes the US radio release by about two years: “Hey St. Peter” by Flash and The Pan.
This tune had such an impact on me…it took me 15 years to find it on an album, and I was so glad when I did.
For years I’ve called Olympic figure skating “boxing on blades” because of the perceived crookedness of the judges. Witness the scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games.
Now, a former major star of the sport, John McEnroe, has expressed his opinion that professional tennis may be infiltrated by “The Organization”. Considering the history of the abovementioned event during the Cold War, this assertion, if it can be corroborated, does not surprise me at all. McEnroe is a brave man indeed if he’s standing up to The Organization.
