re: Iraq announces offensive against Islamic State in western Mosul - LSUgusto on 2/19/17 at 7:57 am
I hope the Iraqis succeed, because ISIS is scum of the earth. If successful, the next question is what will happen to the people of Mosul. Before ISIS took over, the Iraqi army of Shiites were supposedly mistreating the Sunni population of Mosul pretty badly. The new military leadership now se...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

That don't look like the Free Speech Alley I remember, but I hope it's still alive. I used to love debating anyone who stood up on the bench. I only wish I knew then what I know now, right?

I think my experience is similar to yours. I liked some of his songs while growing up, and even as an actor, but never got the people who praised him as one of the greatest, which became a topic amongst my musician friends when he died. At that time, I tried to give him a fresh listen, and prett...
