- Dave Fisher obituary
Singer and arranger with the US folk group the HighwaymenDave Fisher, who has died of a bone marrow disease aged 69, was the lead singer, guitarist and musical director of the US folk group the Highwaymen, who enjoyed chart success in 1961 with the songs Michael, Row the Boat Ashore and The Gypsy Rover.The group veered towards the entertainment wing of the folk boom in early 1960s America, featuring few politically radical songs. They therefore failed to survive the change in popular music during the British invasion of pop groups led by the Beatles. In any case, group members were anxious to pursue other careers, although Fisher continued to work in the music industry. For the past two decades, with Fisher at the helm, the Highwaymen enjoyed regular reunion concerts.Fisher was born in New Haven, Connecticut, and at high school sang with a doo-wop group, the Academics. In 1958, at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, he formed a folk music group, the Clansmen, with fellow students. By the following year, they had a recording contract from United Artists and a manager, Ken Greengrass, who suggested a change in name. The youngsters had been unaware of the political implications of a name that appeared to ally them with the Ku Klux Klan, and a new name, the Highwaymen, was chosen, after the title of a 1906 poem by Alfred Noyes.Their eponymous first album was released in 1960, but sold few copies. A similar fate befell a single, Santiano, and United Artists dropped the group. But an independent distributor in Connecticut pushed the single's B side, Michael, Row the Boat Ashore, renamed simply Michael, and persuaded radio DJs to play it. By the summer of 1961, it had reached No 1 in the US, Britain and 20 other countries.

- Rip Torn in court for breaking into bank 'he thought was his home'
Film and TV actor found asleep and intoxicated in bank branch and asked police what they were doing in his houseThe veteran Hollywood actor Rip Torn is due in court today on charges of breaking into a bank with a loaded gun.The 79-year-old, who appeared in films such as Men in Black and Dodgeball, was arrested in January, in Connecticut, when police found him inside the branch of Litchfield BanCorp after the alarm went off.According to the police report, the Oscar-nominated actor was almost three times over the drink-drive limit.He was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.In a court appearance last month, his attorney, Thomas Waterfa ll, told the judge that his client needed help with his alcohol abuse and that he could start treatment immediately. Torn was released on $100,000 (£66,230) bail and was told by the judge to undergo an evaluation for substance abuse.Waterfall has said that Torn was confused and thought the bank was his home, which is a mile and half down the street. According to reports, Torn actually went to sleep in the bank and asked police what they were doing in his house when they arrived.Last year, Torn was given probation in a Connecticut drink-driving case and entered an alcohol education programme. He also has two previous drunken driving arrests in New York.In January 2004, Torn was arrested in New York after his car collided with a taxi. A video of his arrest in which he swears at officers and refuses a breathalyser test was aired on TV. A jury subsequently acquitted Torn of any wrongdoing.In December 2006, Torn was again arrested for drunk driving in North Salem, New York, after colliding with a tractor trai 映画やテレビ俳優の眠りや銀行の支店で酔うとは、彼のhouseTheベテランのハリウッド俳優のリップトーンで何をしていた警察の要請法廷で、今日銀行に読み込まgun.The 79違反の疑いで予定されて歳の発見人の映画の男性などの黒とドッジボールのように、1月にはコネチカット州に警察リッチフィールドコープの枝の中のアラームの後彼を見つけたのは、アカデミー賞にノミネートされた俳優、ほぼ3年警察にoff.According 4157年登場ドリンクを飲みながら回ドライブlimit.Heの許可なしにピストルを運ぶと、中には、まず酔う度強盗、第一級の犯。侵入すると3度の犯罪mischief.In法廷に現れたのは先月、銃を運ぶ起訴された彼の弁護士、トーマスWaterfa llを、と同判事は、彼のクライアントが彼のアルコール乱用に助けが必要だが、彼はすぐに治療を開始できます

- Chris Dodd and Byron Dorgan: two very different departures | Michael Tomasky
The retirement of Senators Dodd and Dorgan don't have a lot in common – but they highlight the toxic atmosphere in US politicsThey happened within about five hours of each other. First, Tuesday evening, Democratic North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan announced that he would be retiring, not seeking re-election in 2010. Then, just before midnight, news broke that another Senate Democrat, Connecticut's Chris Dodd, would retire as well. Is there something in the water?Yes and no. Back-to-back announcements like these two are rare indeed, even without precedent in my memory. So it undoubtedly makes for a rough 24 hours for the Democrats.Beyond that superficial level, however, the two cases are quite different. Dorgan's departure is indeed a massive blow to the party – unspinnable, as numbers whiz Nate Silver put it on his blog (linked to above). Dorgan holds a seat in a red state that will almost surely go Republican. There's a very popular GOP governor, John Hoeven, and it's widely assumed he'll run and win.Observers have known for a few months now that the Democrats would likely lose Senate seats in the 2010 election – most prognosticators today think two to four, possibly five, depending on lots of possible scenarios – leaving them with still a clear majority but fewer than 60, the magic number in this era in which a supermajority is needed to do anything.But the Dorgan announcement drives that reality home. A Democratic majority of 55 or even 58 can pass nothing if Republicans remain the party of no. There's no reason they won't, and indeed all the more reason they will.The Dodd retirement is different. It's actually welcome news from a Democratic point of view. He's been enmeshed in allegations that he received a sweetheart mortgage deal. He would have faced a brutal re-e 上院ドッドとドーガン上院議員の退職後の共通点はあまりないんだ-が、米国では、有毒な雰囲気politicsTheyお互いの約5時間以内に起こった強調表示します
