I never claim to be any kind of an academic or anything, no scholar, I. So although my interests are legion, my involvement may seem a bit shallow. I generally avoid research. So simple facts surprise me sometimes.
Sometimes in a good way. I think about Baby Washington from time to time, and I always hold her up as one of the great, great singers of my time. As I was considering the song below, I wondered how she was doing, which is a euphemism for "is she still alive?"
Turns out that she's only eight years older than I am, which makes her only seventy-three, and yes, there's no death date showing on her Wiki file. I looked at the images too, there are some good more-recent pictures among them. I think it's great; I hope that she's doing fine. We all, the world I mean, owe her sincere thanks for all of the great music that she gave us.
