GLEN CAMPBELL - GALVESTON / GENTLE ON MY MIND / WICHITA LINEMAN - VINYL Capitol-UMe Galveston is the thirteenth album by Glen Campbell, released in 1969 by Capitol Records.

The tune =Galveston" was penned by Jimmy Webb, who also wrote the follow-up single "Where's the Playground Susie," which hit # 10 on the Easy Listening chart. Gentle On My Mind is the sixth album Campbell recorded, in 1967, and features songwriter John Hartford's version of the song about lost love. Campbell gathered some of his fellow session players to record a demo version, which eventually became a mega-hit upon release.

The album" was Campbell's 12th and the title song reached #3 on the U.S. pop chart, and was certified gold in January 1969.

The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani ANOTHER BORING BOOK U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has just written her 11 book called This Fight is Our Fight. She takes on the Republicans as usual, but appears to say very little about why the Democrats lost last November or how most of them, herself included, have acted since. When asked about the focus of her latest book, she says, "Have Democrats failed? Yes. There have been places where we have not fought as hard as we should, but Republicans as a party have blocked every move that would have helped working families." MORE APARTMENTS FOR EASTIE WATERFRONT All one has to do is take a ride to Jeffries Point waterfront to see a new city of high-rises sprouting up. Take a ride over to the North End Waterfront, and you can see Manhattan-style buildings lining the edges of the East Boston waterfront, which could be bigger than Southie's Seaport District. The latest news? The Davis Companies is proposing a 1 19- unit apartment complex at the former Hodge Boiler Works site. The company is proposing the complex next to LoPresti Park. Lots of open space for public access, including adding a missing piece of the Harborwalk that would connect the Carlton Wharf and future Clippership Wharf sections to the east of LoPresti Park. COLLEGE NEWSPAPER DOESN'T KNOW WHAT FREE SPEECH IS An editorial in the Wellesley College campus newspaper that called for "shutting down" forms of hateful speech is now arguing that the campus community will "not stand for hate speech and its limits on college campuses." According to its editorial, =Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and fights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech. The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed." Whatever happened to colleges and universities being open to all ideas and opinions, the exchange of countering ideas? Shutting down speech you don't like is never an expression of free speech. The East Boston Soup Kitchen receives donations all the time.

For the 2017 Boston Mara- thon, the effort was expanded to neighborhood parks and public spaces well beyond the marathon route. The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park (FOCCP) brought our atten- tion to the hundreds of pot ted plants on the waterfront shown in these pictures. The blue and yellow potted Boston Strong daffodils, put out by the FOCCP Horticulture volunteers the Friday before the race, were labeled with signs asking visi- tors to leave them in place until Marathon Monday afternoon, when they could be taken by visitors. For more on this annual flo- ral tribute, see the interview with Matt Piscitelli from Olson Greenhouses (rink below) on the 20,000 daffodil bulbs contribut- ing to the cause. The perennial effort was started in 2014 by Diane Valle, who gathered vol- unteers to plant bulbs along the marathon route. Closer to town and the finish line, pot- ted plants are displayed along the streets and in business windows. Prepared in a greenhouse, the daffodil plants are kept cool and timed to bloom perfectly for Marathon Monday! news / 20160416 / perennial-in - spiration-raynhams-daffodils- serve-as- symbol-of-strength-at- boston-marathon
