Requiem for Ibrahim Ferrer

R.I.P. Ibrahim Ferrer, 1927-2005.

The Buena Vista Social Club album is one of my favorites. I'm sure he's making heavenly music with Compay Segundo and Ruben Gonzalez right now.

Condolences to the loved ones of Peter Jennings, too.

I am observing a three day mourning period over Jennings. Not posting to my blog. Not getting out of bed. Not switching to the cheap bourbon. Only Canadian Club.
Seriously, I was truly saddened over this one. Peter was Journalism with a Big J. He's second only to Brokaw in my book.
