JJ Cale is reported to have died of a heart attack on July 26, 2013. Songwriter and performer extraordinaire, Cale has penned many tunes in his time for a roster of bona fide legends as noted in this excerpt from his Wikipedia page:

“JJ Cale (also J.J. Cale), born John Weldon Cale on December 5, 1938, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a Grammy Award-winning American singer-songwriter and musician. Cale is one of the originators of the Tulsa Sound, a loose genre drawing on blues, rockabilly, country, and jazz influences. Cale’s personal style has often been described as “laid back”.

His songs have been performed by a number of other musicians including “After Midnight” and “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton, “Cajun Moon” by Randy Crawford, “Clyde” and “Louisiana Women” by Waylon Jennings, “Magnolia” by Jai, “Bringing It Back” by Kansas, “Call Me the Breeze” and “I Got the Same Old Blues” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, “I’d Like to Love You, Baby” by Tom Petty, “Travelin’ Light” and “Ride Me High” by Widespread Panic, “Tijuana” by Harry Manx, “Sensitive Kind” by Carlos Santana, “Cajun Moon” again by Herbie Mann with Cissy Houston, and “Same Old Blues” by Captain Beefheart.”

How Indianapolis EMS hopes to cut down on “Frequent Flyers”

Indianapolis EMS is going to be sending a Social Worker out on 911 calls in an effort to reduce the number of “Frequent Flyers” that are abusing the system. One can read about it here. I am curious as to exactly what a Social Worker can do and whether or not a Social Worker would be appropriate in a 911 situation. Perhaps a Social Worker can explain programs that may exist that could offer assistance but will that really cut costs … or just shift them to someone else’s budget?

What are your thoughts?

Beth Hart. Forever Young from the 37 Days CD.

I like pretty much everything Beth Hart sings.  I’ll definitely post more from her in the future.
