"Folded money only! I don't wanna hear no jangle."

Locals today were wondering if the two windmills east of Moorhead would ever turn again after it was announced this morning that Ed Schultz would be leaving The Mighty 790 KFGO in Fargo for a nightly TV program "The Ed Show" on MSNBC in New York City starting Monday.

56572 never had an Ed Schultz. 56572 did have a Roger Pinckney XI who has returned to his roots in South Carolina and is doing quite well thank you. Roger emailed me this audio clip this afternoon. I thought those of you who knew Roger would enjoy hearing his voice again as "Reverend Pinckney" first tells a story then reads "Coming to Wear My Britches," the introduction to his new book "The Mullet Manifesto."

For those of you who don't know either Ed or Roger, never mind.
For those of us who know and love Roger for who he is......this is ear candy.

Roger Pinckney Reads for "High Tide at Wormsloe"
Roger Pinckney of Daufuskie Island, South Carolina
Reading Titles and Origins:
"High Tide at Wormsloe" was a fund-raising event for Georgia's Ogeechee-Canoochee Riverkeeper. The event was held at Wormsloe Plantation, the oldest of Georgia's tidewater estates which has remained in the hands of the same family since 1736. Wormsloe figures in the life of letters in Georgia, as many generations of the family accumulated manuscripts relating to Georgia history, natural and cultural. In 1765, John and William Bartram described Wormsloe Plantation in detail on a trip to the southeastern coast.

Roger describes local ways of dealing with an obstreperous pear tree as well as reading "Coming to Wear My Britches," the introduction to the book "The Mullet Manifesto."
