Political endorsement season is upon us. I'm happy to announce my highly-coveted endorsement in the 2016 race for President of the United States:

Vote for nobody.

Please join me in voting for nobody on election day.

Charles Litaker

7 July 1947 - 25 March 2015

A credit to his community, he was the long-serving Minister of Music for First United Methodist Church in Wadesboro and, his poor health notwithstanding, organist at Mom's funeral. Thank you, Mr. Litaker for blessing my family with your friendship and music, both of which continue to inspire.

Chris Squire

4 March 1948 - 27 June 2015

pre-concert tribute 23 August 2015

Another person lost too soon at age sixty-seven, the bassist extraordinaire was my favorite member of my favorite band, Yes. Thank you for all the years of great songs, performances and showmanship, Chris. You are missed.
