Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover
we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:00am (ET) (or whenever we get around to it) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.
This Day in History
FDR wins unprecedented third term in the White House; Richard Nixon elected President; Former President Reagan says he has Alzheimer’s; George Foreman sets boxing record; Pianist Vladimir Horowitz dies.
Many people believe that this is a love song when in fact that isn’t true. I read on Kenny Loggins website that while this song did begin as a love song, after visiting his sick Father in the hospital, he transformed this record into an inspiration song to encourage his father.
His Father was gravely ill, & could ellect to undergo further treatment that could prolong his life, but could also lead to a painful recovery process. The inspiration worked! His father did undergo the treatment, & he lived for another four years.
This song has become an anthem of hope for me. I believe that there is a defining day in everyone life that could alter their destiny for the better.
