Rest in Peace, Merle

Merle Haggard is dead. I just listened to his greatest hits album a few days ago. I can’t say I’m a big fan, I am ignorant of country music and was only introduced to him through Grateful Dead covers, but Mama Tried always tugged on my heart. I think everyone, from time to time, experiences sin and regret without knowing how in the world he could have done differently. Seems like Haggard was that kind of guy.

All over now. Requiescat in eternum.
