Sweet Dreams of Patsy
American Spectator, by Larry Thornberry

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/4/2013 6:11:49 AM

Tuesday it will have been a half-century since the premature death of Patsy Cline deprived the world of one of the finest and most charismatic musical stylists of the 20th century (or of any other century, come to that). Patsy’s many fans, which include me, have every reason to wonder what might have been had she been given a few more decades to perform and record. And every reason to mourn what is surely a considerable loss. But damn I’m glad we had her while we did. What she left behind is a treasure.

That was a very sweet tribute; I hope Mr. Thornberry will make his way to Nashville sometime to catch a performance of ´´Always, Patsy Cline.´´ Here is a link: http://www.nowplayingnashville.com/event/detail/441609951

I loved her when I was a kid and I love her now that I´m old and gray. I still listen to her now. My wife´s ringtone when she calls is "I fall to pieces."

I miss her.

Excellent tribute. I have her greatest hits and play them in the rare times when I´m alone; I cannot tolerate someone talking over Patsy singing. And, yes, a few voices do have that "paralyzing" effect. Elvis and Patsy come to mind.

Ah! Tears in my eyes remembering the Saturday nights with the sounds of the ‘Grand Ol’ Opry’ fading in and out on the radio while Patsy sang her songs. Names I hadn’t thought of in a long time in this article. Memories of a era long gone…..and truly missed.

There are certain songs that nobody should even try to record again, because the definitive version has been done. Several of Patsy´s songs fall into that category. Sweet Dreams, for example - although Emmy Lou Harris and my wife do the song more than justice. Beyond those three - don´t even try it.

Much appreciated tribute to the Pride of Winchester, Va., and one of the two great contraltos of the twentieth century -- the other is Karen Carpenter. Both departed ladies combined flawless delivery with deep conviction and feeling. I posted a similar tribute to Miss Carpenter on the recent 30th anniversary of her passing, at splashingrocks.blogspot.com ("Remember the Drummer Girl")

She was gifted by God with a great instrument. I have some of her DVD´s. I also love the fact that Loretta Lynn(another great one) named one of her daughters after Patsy.

Just reading the comments here brought back memories for me. My name is actually Patsy and I have had many people ask me over the years if I was named after her. That didn´t happen, as I am only 11 years older than she was. It´s interesting how many people think of her though, when I say that name. She was one of a kind. I was 2 years out of high school when she died. I remember it well. Special Memories.

Somewhere there is a guy named Jack from PA that pulls out a photo of Patsy Cline and says she is his first love. Always wondered what happened to him.

The crop-killing drought that has parched much of the West for 13 years is expected to continue, according to a grim new forecast from the Department of Agriculture. “Right now the West Coast is all red," Natural Resources Conservation Service Hydrologist Tom Perkins said. "Early indications are it will be very dry in the western part of the West, but wetter as you travel east. There are some exceptions to this, as New Mexico, Arizona, parts of Utah and southern Colorado are also expected to be dry."

President Obama nominated Hillary Clinton to be Secretary of State and she was confirmed by the Senate in January 2009. A tenure lasting less than five years would affect the lives of four American families forever. While traveling the globe during her time in office as Secretary of State, Clinton was vocal in her support for the empowerment of women in countries throughout the world. But were there any major foreign policy initiatives led by Secretary Clinton during her time in office? Unfortunately, no. Was Secretary Clinton hoping to create a substantial legacy with the establishment of a diplomatic outpost

But in a congressional district in Northern Virginia, one of the state´s main instigators of culture warfare, state Sen. Richard H.

This is the 50th year of the establishment of the War on Poverty. I was there at its birth and throughout its fateful history. But you would never know from the liberal press that it failed. Recently, the New York Times gave a mixed review to our progress in eliminating poverty. Their analysis: It has been kept in check through transfer payments and in-kind government supports. Let’s be clear from the outset -- the War on Poverty never envisioned lifting people out of poverty by giving them the income and supports to survive. It was based on giving them the

As "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson returns from his brief "hiatus," he´ll do so to the cheers of some surprising supporters — southern blacks. Robertson was suspended from the A&E hit show for calling homosexuality a sin and equating it to bestiality in a GQ profile. Receiving less attention were his comments that black people were happier before the civil rights movement. Media have focused on two camps in the controversy. On one side are Robertson´s predictable supporters, who include white evangelicals, southern Republican politicians and Fox News.(Snip)But while Robertson´s comments have roiled members of MSNBC´s black media elite such as Al

NEW YORK -- Middle-aged men risk a faster mental decline as they age if they´ve been drinking heavily for years, new research suggests. The study of about 5,000 British civil servants found that over a decade, the added decline was the equivalent of about two extra years of aging for a combined measure of mental abilities like reasoning, and about six years for memory. The heavy drinkers´ abilities were compared to those of men who drank moderately or abstained. It´s no surprise that heavy alcohol consumption can affect the brain, but the study focuses on an age range that has received much

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”

Shocking images depicting U.S. soldiers burning the bodies of what appear to be Iraqi insurgents, have emerged today. The explosive photographs, reportedly taken in Fallujah in 2004, have already sparked a Marine Corps investigation, but many of the 41 gag-inducing shots are just too grisly to publish. Two pictures show a Marine pouring what looks like gasoline on the remains of enemy soldiers and another two images appear to show the remains go up in flames. Two more capture the horrifically charred bodies. The sick snaps were exclusively obtained by TMZ, who turned them over to the Pentagon last week, triggering the
