  1. He also had a spoken word hit in the early 70s with “Desiderata” (You are a child of the universe). Great voice!!

  2. His daughter is such a funny writer. Caprice Crane. I read both of her novels and laughed out loud non-stop. Condolences to her and the rest of her family.

  3. Buon giorno! Questo post non poteva essere scritto meglio! Leggendo questo post mi ricorda il mio compagno buona vecchia stanza! Ha sempre mantenuto chiacchierare su questo. Io trasmettere la presente scrittura fino a lui. Abbastanza certo che avrà una buona lettura. Molte grazie per la condivisione sul http://www.tvweek.com!
