Nobody seems to care about wrongful death penalty convictions, so at the risk of sounding like a Magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman opinion, we will write about Percy Sledge and his death today at age 74.
Sledge, a Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, is primarily known for his 1966 #1 hit "When a Man Loves a Woman".
Our favourite lyrics:
When a man loves a woman
down deep in his soul
she can bring him such misery
if she is playing him for a fool
he's a last one to know
loving eyes can never see.
The 60's & 70's: when music was music.
Maybe someday we'll quote those lyrics in a DV case and make Magistrate Goodman proud.
Not this Pitbull crap that Senator Rubio says he likes.
See You In Court.
