Old enough to know better

34 years ago today, or thereabouts, I just about made it into the Guinness Book of World Records. Thank you. It was nothing. Actually, it almost wasnothing. I was serving for five months at the tax payers’ expense about 7400 miles from home in the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia. To be fair, just about anything […]

Mavis Staples has announced her 12th solo studio album. Entitled We Get By, it’s due out on May 10th through ANTI- Records. We Get By serves as the follow-up to 2017’s If All I Was Was Black, which was written and produced by Wilco frontman and frequent collaborator Jeff Tweedy. This time, Staples has teamed up with Ben Harper, who composed 11 original tracks meant to offer “love, hope, and history during a politically divided era.” Appropriately, Staples looked to famed American photographer and civil rights documentarian Gordon Parks in creating the album’s cover. The powerful visual is part of a 1956 photo essay published in Life titled, “The Restraints: Open and Hidden”, which focused on exposing the effects of American racial segregation. In 2017, Staples won the Gordon Parks Foundation Award in recognition of her inspiring and creative body of work. (Read: Protest Music Disappeared in a Year of Protests) As a first listen of We Get By, Staples and Harper have released “Change”, a defiant blues number, characterized by an easy swing, rockin’ rhythmic guitar, and gospel-inspired harmonies. Throughout the song, the legendary singer frankly assess the state of freedom in the US with poignant commentary on shootings. In the number, she belts, “What good is freedom/ If we haven’t learned to be free?”, frequently punctuating her ideas with the energized refrain of “We got to change/ Around here/ Say it loud/ Say it clear.” Listen to the track below, and pre-order We Get By here.

In my last blog entry, I discussed procedural obligations arising from statute and soft law. What happens when those documents are silent or ambiguous? When a statute is silent or leaves gaps with respect to procedure, the common law steps in to fill those gaps. The other fundamental principle is that to override the rules […]
