This is JOTW newsletter number 931

 

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on

– Harry Nilsson “Lean on Me”

 

(Last week I said this song was composed by Harry Nilsson.  I knew it was pereformed by Bill Withers, but in fact Nilsson’s song was totally different.)

 

***  From TG:

 

FYI, Bill Withers wrote Lean on Me.

 

***  From MG:

 

You should give credit to Bill Withers, not Harry Nilsson for “Lean on me.”

 

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

 

This week’s JOTW newsletter comes to you from San Diego, California.
