If you asked me to pick is my favorite George or Merle, I will tell you that that’s a hard one to call.  However, as much as I love the Possum, if I have to choose, it’s Merle Haggard for me.

Merle had surgery for lung cancer and from what I’m hearing, the prognosis is good.  This makes me quite happy. If you’re the praying type, tho’ one Up for Merle.
