“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white. Or a rape.”—richard milhouse nixon, 37th president of the united states, according to newly released white house audiotapes from 1973. (via new york times)
great link, because it tells you everything you need to know to start digging gamble and huff and the o’jays, but it also inspired this awesome comment exchange:
"Isn’t this all summarized nicely by Hall and Oates" -dismalScientist "You can laugh all you want but Darryl Hall is one of only three white guys who will get into R&B Heaven" -lexicondevil (ed. note: agreed) "who else" -anonymous "Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald…Guys like Steve Winwood and Eric Burdon have to wait in Blue-Eyed Soul Purgatory with Rare Earth and the Young Rascals." -lexicondevil
it’s a worthwhile argument. there can’t be more than three whiteys allowed. though give me eric burdon over mcdonald anyday. i will now put ‘spill the wine’ on repeat.
