2. To give him credit, Cherry turned it down saying he didn't want
to take a paycut. He's honest at least.

8. What a great loose cannon he would be.
Edited on Thu May-06-04 02:45 PM by Minstrel Boy
In the documentary about Frank Magazine, The Frank Truth, Cherry's asked how he feels about being called a racist. He pauses, smiles and says "Well maybe I am."



Don Cherry was put here so progressive Canadians wouldn't become insufferably smug.

15. Don Cherry is dead
Ornette Coleman would be a natural subsititute, but he's not a Canadian.

How about Oliver Lake? I sincerely doubt he's a wacko hatemonger, but he does have a very strong personality, and he puts across his views in a forceful way that people appreciate.
