    Helen Milliken, Michigan first lady and activist

    Championed the Equal Rights Amendment, our ten-cent bottle bill, outlawing billboards along scenic highways, and more. Age 89.

    MLive

    She told The Associated Press in 2006 about her concerns that many younger women were shying away from political activism and the "feminist" label.
    "They don't know their history," she said at the time. "Young women take so much for granted now."
    Feminism, she said, had "been redefined and misinterpreted" by conservatives as wild-eyed radicalism.
    "Nobody ever saw anybody burn a bra; they're too expensive," she said. "But the myth has survived. There have been excesses, but the goal has always remained the same: equal opportunity for women."

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Jazz great Dave Brubeck died today at 91. I was never a fan of most jazz, but I can listen to his stuff (along with Grant Green and Vince Guaraldi and a few others) all day long.

    I guess he's taking more than 5 now...

    Here's Ravi Shankar along with Ali Akbar Khan (another deceased Indian music great) at the Concert for Bangladesh



    My mom used to put this album on the record player all the time when I was little. It's still one of my favorite live recordings of all time.

    Everyone's guesses are here

    Not understanding why it's necessary to close the prognostication thread. Editing expires (hah!) after an hour, no?
