Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame best known for "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," died Monday morning after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83. Daniels' death was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels Jr. By the time the Charlie Daniels Band topped the charts with “Devil” in 1979, the instrumentalist, singer and songwriter had long established a remarkable, multifaceted career in Music City. As a session musician, he played on three of Bob Dylan’s albums — including the revolutionary “Nashville Skyline''

Sad news. My SIL used to work in a recording studio and saw Charley on a regular basis. A truly likable and friendly good ol' country boy. What you saw in public was the real deal.

"Uneasy Rider" was one of my first favorite songs. And Trump played "In America" at Mount Rushmore. Great musician and a Patriot. RIP CD.

After an especially meaningful Fourth of July, we awaken to news such a great American, talented country music star and Godly man has gone Home. Thank you Charlie for your bold conservative tweets and interviews standing up for President Donald J. Trump. I say it again - he is one of the last of the country music legends to who stood unashamedly for God and country. Today’s country “stars” could take a lesson!!

Interesting and amazing that he played on Dylan's "Nashville Skyline." I can remember visiting relatives in California as a young pup, and my older cousins listened to that album over and over. (Probably the first "country" music they'd ever listened to, and they were enthralled.) It was groundbreaking for Mr. Dylan - he loved to poke the ant-pile back then, I've been a Charlie Daniels fan for almost 50 years - will miss him. (Never cared for his big "Devil" hit... but I like a lot of his stuff.) Condolences to his family and friends.

Charlie Daniel's rendition of "Still in Saigon" was perhaps his most moving song, as it spoke to a that portion of a generation who answered their country's call to war and were reviled by their fellow citizens for their sacrifices. Though Charlie was not a veteran, I can't imagine anyone else doing that song justice.

The cars — backing in and out, pulling up next to each other, or idling for long stretches at a time — are a new presence here, she says. Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month. “If you sit here long enough, you’ll start

The proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline has been scrapped after years of legal challenges and construction delays. The project’s developers, Dominion Energy and Duke Energy, announced the pipeline’s cancellation in a joint statement on Sunday, citing “increasing legal uncertainty” — less than a month after the U.S. Supreme Court approved a critical permit that West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice celebrated as an “exciting” victory. “This announcement reflects the increasing legal uncertainty that overhangs large-scale energy and industrial infrastructure development in the United States,” Dominion CEO Tom Farrell and Duke CEO Lynn Good said in the statement. “Until these issues are resolved

The protests over George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Minneapolis Police have brought to the forefront the variety of ways in which our society continues to harbor white supremacy and perpetuate racism. Part of this reckoning involves removing racist monuments, including the Christopher Columbus statue that the City of Detroit recently put in storage. But if we’re going to get serious about removing symbols of this country’s endemic racism, we shouldn’t stop there. Detroit’s most persistent, visible, and disruptive symbols of racism are its freeways. Planners routed Detroit's freeways through predominantly Black communities.

CNN has determined that “master bedroom” carries racist connotations, as do several other commonly used terms and phrases, including “blacklist,” “cakewalk,” and the “peanut gallery.” The English language is fraught with words and phrases that carry racist connotations, (Snip) both of whom presented the problematic terms in a piece published Monday. Many of the phrases used are “so entrenched that Americans don’t think twice about using them,”(Snip) are directly rooted in the nation’s history with chattel slavery. Others now evoke racist notions about Black people,” they wrote, concluding that America’s “reckoning with systemic racism” is “forcing a more critical look at the language we use.”

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken
