Remembering Journalist William Worthy (1921-2014) Democracy Now and “The Ballad of William Worthy” – Phil Ochs (videos)

Willliam Worthy

This morning when I went out to run some errands I took the iPod with me and set it on shuffle songs.Phil Ochs’ song “The Ballad of William Worthy” came on about in the middle of the trip. Since Mr Worthy died on the 4th of last month (May), I’ll take the playing of the song as a sign that I should take a few moments to reflect on the life of a very important journalist that we should all know a little more about!!
