The Gateway (Piece of My Heart Edition)
Jerry Ragovoy’s' greatest productions, for the likes of such cult favorite non-household names as Garnett Mimms, Erma Franklin, Lorraine Ellison and Howard Tate, convey the irony of a songwriter whose work is best remembered for covers by more famous artists who were members of the cults.The Stones‘ "Time is on My Side" wasn't merely a cover; it was a cover of a cover, while Janis never lived long enough to record a song he‘d actually written for her.

GATE: Nice if you had mentioned it--even in an aside; people in places like Sheepshead Bay read that Paper and might get a different impression, given that your prose in the article strongly implies a total lack of support.
Phillip A. Saperia: I agree with Gatemouth. David Weprin is a tested liberal with a credentialed record.Lincoln Restler: Thanks, Phillip. I also support him in this election.
Silver says Koch is out of line on Weprin.I'm glad Silver is saying this, but is it churlish of me to ask why he did not mention his conference member, Dov Hikind? Shelly Silver calls Ed Koch 'out of line' for urging Jews to put GOP in Anthony Weiner seat www.nydailynews.com
