Jimmy Dean, RIP

Who knew the country singer Jimmy Dean was still alive? While "PT-109" is a fantastically stupid song (though interesting in the sense that it's hard to imagine a popular country singer writing a paean to a Democratic president today. And it's not like country musicians were more liberal in 1961 than today, though certainly like most white southerners, their party affiliation was generally Democratic in those days), "Big Bad John" is pretty awesome.
