Happy birthday, Little Richard

PUBLIC DOMAIN Little Richard performing at the University of Texas Forty Acres Festival in 2007.

Little Richard gave me one of my all-time greatest journalistic thrills when he sang part of "Tutti-Frutti" during an interview.

Right before the phoner ended the rock 'n' roll great said: "God bless you. God bless you and your family."

So, I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Richard turned 78 today.
