“Obie” Benson of the Four Tops passed away, although the reports of his death are greatly overshadowed by the reports of Luther Vandross’s death. For those of you keeping score, that means only two of the Four Tops remain. (Lawrence Payton died in 1997.)
Mom and I saw the Tibbits Summer Theatre’s production of Gypsy Friday night. We were able to get our tickets for only $10 each because of a “rush seating” promotion available 15 minutes before showtime. I would like to be back down here for their production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, since the movie was always entertaining.
Blarg, I’m going to enjoy this three-day weekend. Both today and Sunday, the Cubs are on WGN, so I’ll be able to watch those games here at Mom’s. I’ll also try to check out Live 8 coverage every so often, but you know you can’t trust MTV to provide comprehensive coverage.
