    Leon Redbone dies at 127

    At least that's what the obituary on his website says. There's a possibility he wrote it in advance (or possible post-mortem?) given that other sources say he was 69.

    I thought he was way older than that.
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    I found him enjoyable in small doses, RIP.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    My brother & I saw him perform at St. X High School's theater as part of the Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society series. Interesting show.
