Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Mylon Lefevre, 78, contemporary Christian music artist, died Friday. His wife wrote on Facebook: "With his contemporary Christian rock band, Mylon and Broken Heart, he had the privilege of leading over 250,000 youth to Jesus. He cherished all the years of music ministry and the countless lives touched through his songs but his greatest joy was teaching the Word of God ..."

Wikipedia:
Quote
... As a teen, LeFevre was expelled from a private religious high school when his father took him out to be with the family while they performed at a local concert. At 17 years old, while in the Army where he was paid $84 per month, he wrote his first song, "Without Him." While stationed at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, the LeFevres were performing at a gospel convention in Memphis. That weekend, LeFevre hitchhiked over 600 miles to get there. Onstage, singing "Without Him", he did not know that Elvis Presley was there. After the concert, Elvis asked to meet LeFevre. Shortly thereafter, Elvis recorded the song for his album, How Great Thou Art, and within the next year, over a hundred artists would record his song.  ...

His first mainstream album, entitled Mylon, We Believe (Atlantic/Cotillion Records 1970), is considered by some to be the first true "Jesus Rock" album ...

Charlie Robison, Texas country singer and songwriter, dead at 59

By Tracy Wright, Fox News
Published Sep. 11, 2023

Charlie Robison, country music singer and songwriter, died on Sunday. He was 59.

Robison’s representatives confirmed his death to Fox News Digital.

The musician died at a hospital in San Antonio after suffering cardiac arrest and other complications, according the Associated Press.

He launched his career in the ’80s, and released his solo debut, “Bandera,” which was named after the Texas Hill Country town where his family had a ranch for eight generations.

Robison’s sister, Robyn Ludwick, shared a tribute to Charlie on social media Sunday, and said that her heart was “broken in the deepest most irreparable way.”

“My big brother Charlie passed away in the arms of his loved ones,” she wrote on Facebook. “Please play some Charlie Robison on Repeat. He would want it that way.”

The Texas native grew up playing music with his brother Bruce, and released nine albums throughout his career.

This one shocked me. He made some incredible music in his day.

"El Cerrito Place", probably his biggest commercial hit:

"Loving County", the song that is always on lists of the darkest, most gothic country songs:

"My Home Town" live at Gruene Hall, the best version of this song in my opinion:

Former NYPD Commissioner Howard Safir – who led historic decrease in crime – dead at 81

By Larry Celona, Tina Moore and Ronny Reyes
Published Sep. 12, 2023

Former NYPD Commissioner Howard Safir – who oversaw a historic decrease in crime in the late 1990s and left an indelible mark on the nation’s largest police force – died in Annapolis, Maryland, on Monday. He was 81.

Safir, a Bronx native with a decades-long career in law enforcement, was named the city’s top cop by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1996, and served until 2000 – establishing the NYPD’s Courtesy, Professionalism & Respect program, a motto that is still painted on the side of every police vehicle to this day.

“A public servant for more than three decades, Commissioner Safir dedicated his professional life to improving the lives of others,” said current NYPD Commissioner Edward Caban.

Safir was “a devoted, dynamic leader whose pioneering work in fugitive apprehension, illicit drug enforcement, and officer training is still emulated today,” Caban said.

Roger Whittaker, English baritone folk/schlager singer, dies at 87



Whittaker was best known for his folk ballads set to lush orchestrations with a distinct, rich baritone voice. In Germany, the style is known as schlager, and though Whittaker did not speak German, his ability to phonetically pronounce his German discography was good enough to earn him the honor of "Germany's Favorite Englishman." In America, his recordings were within the province of the "easy listening" genre, and though his hits rarely crossed into the Hot 100, he did have one crossover pop hit, "The Last Farewell."

“The Last Farewell” takes me back to my childhood, when my family of 9 lived on the farm and all my grandparents were still alive. I wept this morning listening to that song. RIP
“So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That You will pull me through
And if I can't let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home”
