I had meant to write a line on sequestration today. Instead here I am writing about Carole King. I heard being interviewed by Diane Rehm on NPR today and discovered that she had written or co-written half the songs with which I grew up. I have spent the afternoon with Spotify listening to her albums. It has been an amazing trip down memory lane. I had absolutely no idea that so many of my favorites came from this woman. Thank you Carole.
