Not to go off topic, but Miss J wonders what Pop Fem thinks of this:
Aretha Franklin greatest singer in rock era: poll
Somewhere, Miss J has an incomplete post on a similar topic.

That’s interesting miss j…honestly, I don’t put too much stock in lists– they’re far too subjective and rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t work by that kind of linear criteria anyway, but to be honest I’ve always felt that Franklin and Ray Charles both were overrated. Sam Cooke is the greatest pop singer of all time as far as I’m concerned, vocal performance and not personae being the only method of judgement, but “pop” or “rock” as a category is far too postmodern to pin down in a list of any kind really.

Unsolved? Is there any doubt that the motel owner did it? Or is it the motivation that’s uncertain?

Miss J will agree with Pop Feminist you somewhat about lists… Its’ all so subjective. Yet she does enjoy reading people’s lists and most particularly their justifications for their choices.

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding his death–especially because his body shows evidence of a brutal beating, which hardly corroborates the women he supposedly tried to rapes’ story.
In any case, it’s a symptom of those times. The death of a black man goes uninvestigated.

Miss J– Agreed on that! Hrm…that’s inspiring me to make a few PF lists of my own…
