Eye-Hand Coordination:

Dusty Wasn’t Sure

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

If you lived through the ’60’s, you remember legendary British pop-singer Dusty Springfield. Although most fans never thought about it at the time, Dusty couldn’t decide if she was straight or gay.  That’s why this song had such significance for her.

On March 2, 1999, Dusty died of breast cancer at 60 years old.  She had been scheduled to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just two weeks later. At the ceremony, her friend Elton John said, “I’m biased but I just think she was the greatest white singer there ever has been … Every song she sang, she claimed as her own.”

Joseph Merrick, the “Elephant Man” was born in the late 1800’s in England. As he grew, Merrick became even more horribly deformed and was exhibited as a freak by numerous “managers”.

At 24, he was abandoned in London with neither money nor a friend.  Fortunately, he was rescued by a Doctor who had studied him in medical school.  The “Elephant Man” was then sympathetically given a place to live in London Hospital where he was visited by numerous guests including the Princess of Wales.

What astounded everyone was Merrick’s personality.  He was loving, kind, very appreciative, never spoke negatively of anyone, and was extremely literate.  He wrote:

“Tis true my form is something odd,

But blaming me is blaming God;

Could I create myself anew

I would not fail in pleasing you.”

Although Merrick was supposed to sleep sitting up because of the enormous weight of his head, one night he chose to lie down “like normal people.” That night, Merrick’s airway became constricted and he died peacefully in his sleep.  Mr. Joseph Merrick was 27.

New Blue

The former Midtown Tower in downtown Rochester, is being rehabbed and the upper floors contain high-end apartments with rents in the $1000-$4000/month range. Most are already rented. They’ve added a second line of light which I like very much.

A part of Manhattan Square can be seen in the lower left of the picture. I lived there for over 30-years in 5-different apartments. I now live about 6-blocks away.
