With the Tired and Hungry and Scared

Lovely song. I always liked Willie.


Very nice Abby, you do a wonderful job with your column! Please keep going!!


Careful, Willie. Remember what happened to the Dixie Chicks? Some C&W music fans don’t take kindly to having their illusions messed with (but I went and bought their concert double disk and became a fan, so there’s that).


There was that sad part of his song that made me think that nothing changes for immigrants. I have read that when people came in to Ellis Island , and after they were tested, if they had a disease or a problem that America didn’t want—then they were sent back to wherever they came from. What a conundrum for families if they were separated —would they separate and leave some family members behind? That’s what Trump is doing again. He is repeating cruel history
