(Florida Dodged The Bullet, Again!)

Hurricane Marie missed Florida, altogether.  But Puerto Rico was really hit hard.  And today (Tuesday), it's threatening the coastline of North Carolina and Virginia.  It may not hit landfall but the winds and erosion will do more than enough damage.

(CNN) Puerto RIco:  Hurricane Maria whipped Puerto Rico with Irma-level winds, drenched the island with Harvey-level flooding, crippled communications, decimated buildings and damaged a dam that puts downstream residents at risk of catastrophe.

But help has been slow to come to communities where the devastation is described as "apocalyptic," officials and residents argue.

Gov. Ricardo Rossello said the nation faces a humanitarian crisis.  He urged Congress to approve a cocmmensuate aid package as the US commonwealth, already hammered by a prolonged economic crisis, tries to get back on its feet.

The governor joined others in emphasizing that Puerto Rico's residents are American citizens.  "We need something tangible, a bill that actually answers to our need right now," he said.  "Otherwise, there will be . . . a massive exodus to the (mainland) United States."

"Eve of Destruction" is a protest song written by P. F. Sloan in mid-1964. Several artists have recorded it, but the best-known recording was by Barry McGuire. This recording was made between July 12 and July 15, 1965 and released by Dunhill Records. The accompanying musicians were top-tier LA session players: P. F. Sloan on guitar, Hal Blaine (of Phil Spector's "Wrecking Crew") on drums, and Larry Knechtel on bass. The vocal track was thrown on as a rough mix and was not intended to be the final version, but a copy of the recording "leaked" out to a DJ, who began playing it. The song was an instant hit and as a result the more polished vocal track that was at first envisioned was never recorded.

McGuire's single hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #3 on the UK Singles Chart in September 1965.

This protest song, which topped the chart in 1965, was answered the following year by Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler's"Ballad of the Green Berets," the No. 1 hit of 1966. Sadler was a two-hit wonder—his second single, "The A Team," sold pretty well. In 1972, McGuire was born again and turned his attention to contemporary Christian music.
