RIP - Thanks for the Music

Wilson Pickett died today of a heart attack at 64 years of age.

"Pickett's unforgettable first No. 1 R&B hit, "In the Midnight Hour."

A string of gritty Atlantic hits -- most of them cut at Stax, Muscle Shoals Sound in Alabama or Memphis' American Studios -- followed through the '60s. The biggest of these were "634-5789," "Mustang Sally," "Funky Broadway," "She's Lookin' Good" and "I'm a Midnight Mover." Pickett's most sizable hit, a cover of Chris Kenner's "Land of 1000 Dances," reached No. 6 on the pop chart in 1966. His top 20 1969 single "Hey Jude," a version of the Beatles tune, featured memorable solo work by guitarist Duane Allman."


"I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
That's when my love comes tumbling down
I'm gonna wait 'til the midnight hour
When there's no one else around
I'm gonna take you girl and hold you
Do all things I told you
In the midnight hour
Yes I am, whoa, yes I am"


So long Mr. Pickett, and thanks!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
