Yesterday was one for the books.  First, I woke up to the good news that the Senate run-off in Georgia proceeded without incident.  Next, later in the day, news of riots and chaos at our Capital. In other words, "So fair and foul a day I have not seen."
Also heard that Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers has died.  They were one of my favorite groups during my teenage years, and over the years I played their songs many times in different bands.  I had to revisit one of their tunes, my first of the new year.  I always remember the smiling optimism that Gerry M. brought to the tune.
