Thanks For Checking In
Bobby McFerrin stops in to tell us he's going on vacation:
    For years he's been telling people, "Don't Worry, Be Happy." Now Bobby McFerrin has decided it's time to take his own advice.

    "I've got one week left, and then I'm done for a year," a weary McFerrin told The Associated Press during a weekend visit to UCLA, where he was accepting an award from the Henry Mancini Institute for his contributions to music.

    "I haven't had a sabbatical, I haven't taken a year off from touring in 15 years at least," said McFerrin, whose bright and bouncy ditty, "Don't Worry, Be Happy," seemed to put his name on everybody's lips in 1988 when it won Grammys for song of the year and record of the year.
Some of us might be forgiven in thinking that McFerrin's been on vacation for about 17 years, give or take.

Bah - he's a classical musician mostly. Shame on you.
