Dodging the Roadkill: Passing Of A Rock and Roll Biker

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the greatest rock-n-roll musicians in the history of music, died last Tuesday.  The news was released this past Saturday.  Neil Peart, lyricist and drummer for the band Rush, lost his battle with brain cancer.

Diagnosed in 2016, the intensely private musician kept his illness to his immediate family and friends.  Until the news this past Saturday of his death, I had NO idea he was fighting this battle.

Neil Peart was also a biker.

If you’re a fan of Rush, then you probably know how much Peart loved his motorcycles, and loved the freedom and anonymity that they provide.  It was out of tragedy that Peart turned to his bike and continued his passion for them until his death.

Blackburn Report: Senator Marsha Blackburn visits Border with Vice President Mike Pence

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We continue to hear about the crisis at our southern border. As the situation becomes more and more dire, it is important that both sides of the aisle work together on solving this issue.

On Friday, the Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee saw firsthand the work being done to secure our border. We spoke with border patrol officers, toured the McAllen Border Patrol Station, and spoke with detained migrants. What the cartels are telling them in Central America, or any of the other 60 countries where individuals have arrived from, is not what happens when they arrive on U.S. soil.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
