What CAUSE Are You Fighting For?

Everyone needs a mission. But, rather than Jason Cage's (Alice, Little Rock's night guy) campaign to get Brittany to Divorce Kevin, I like the one being promoted by longtime radio vet Jim Rose:

A move is under way to
pursuade the USPS to issue a first-class postage stamp to commemorate ROY ORBISON's 70th birthday, which is April 23, 2006. ROY's wife, BARBARA, plus DWIGHT YOAKAM, BONO, DAN AYKROYD, PAMELA ANDERSON and others are joined together in this noble effort.

DWIGHT YOAKAM's letter to the postmaster general asked to respectfully request the consideration of issuing a commemorative stamp in honor of legendary popular music artist Roy Orbison. DWIGHT told The Nashville Tennessean, Roy is deserving of an honorary postal stamp and I hope we can count on your support. There is no doubt Roy lived a good life. He loved his family, he loved his music, he loved his fans, and most of all Roy loved his country.

Wink, Texas is ROY's birthplace. ORBISON was a member of Sun records' original Million Dollar Quartet - JOHNNY CASH, ELVIS PRESLEY and JERRY LEE LEWIS. ROY studied music at North Texas State University in Denton. NTSU produced another legendary singer - PAT BOONE.

(and, truth be told, I laughed out loud when I heard about what Cage is doing too!)
