Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Happy Birthday, Gordo!

I missed it - was on November 17th. Gordon Lightfoot, singer and balladeer, is 71. Probably one of the all-time best "storytellers" in the business. Creator of such hits as, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", "Rainy Day People", "Sundown", "If You Could Read My Mind", "Carefree Highway" and my favorites, "Canadian Railroad Trilogy, "The Pony Man", "Cape Horn", and "Song for a Winter's Night".

"Gordo's" been covered by many artists, including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Sarah McLachlan and John Mellencamp and Robbie Robertson of The Band. My brother and Uncle Fran are among his biggest fans.
