Aretha, Frankly

Since I am still under the weather I will simply observe on day 13 of black history month that although Aretha Franklin said last week that she’s retiring, I still can’t believe it. I mean that both in the sense that I may be in denial and in the sense that, come on, Aretha Franklin is going to be Aretha Franklin until the day she dies and likely beyond and there is no retiring from that.
