Freddie's dead -and so is Ernie

Two bits of news caught my eye today:
* Crap cover artist and clown Freddie Garrity has died. He managed to plumb depths that must have shamed even the most inept British beat bands of the 60s with his manic dancing and appalling voice. Poor James Ray, who first recorded If you gotta make a fool of somebody, never got a look in. Is it just a coincidence that Garrity started out as a skiffle player?
* Ray Nagin has been re-elected as Mayor of the 'chocolate' city (to quote his own words) New Orleans. He has a big job on his hands trying to get the city back on its feet and I wish him luck. It's a pity Ernie K-Doe's posthumous attempt was unsuccessful. I'm sure he could have done the job.

We apologise for having taken so long to get round to Freddie. Obviously, we got rid of Harrison, because of his appalling version of Got My Mind Set On You.
