I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.
To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

American V and the last Johnny Cash song It is one of the indications of the strength of character underlying Johnny Cash that he channeled the suffering and loss of his human mortality into creative expression such that his last few years were among his very best ever, artistically speaking.
According to Rick Rubin, Johnny went to work on a fifth American album the day after finishing the fourth, which has been the best received commerically of the series. The album was completed after Cash passed with, among others, the continuing help of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers.
American V is set for release on July 4, 2006. It features what is touted as the last song that Johnny Cash wrote, "Like the 309." Among other songs on the album are Bruce Springsteen's "Further On (Up the Road)," Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind," Hank Williams' "On the Evening Train," Rod McKuen's "Love's Been Good To Me."
