Yet Another Reason to Revere Willie Nelson

Now I'm even happier that I shelled out for tickets to see Willie this summer. He sent bandanas, whiskey, and a "Way to go. Stand your ground" message to the Texas Democrats on the run from the Department of Homeland Security.

The man is a national treasure as valuable as Louis Armstrong or Mark Twain. He's on tour at age seventy and if anything he's a more vibrant performer than a lot of artists who are less than half his age.
