    Earl Scruggs was a genuine talent and he’ll be missed.

    @Swimswithsharks….. Why don’t YOU draw something – that is, if you can do better?

    Scruggs was a creator of beauty. I’m glad that people are celebrating his art.

    Earl scruggs was not just a banjo player, he was a national treasure. He lifted the banjo out of the context of being a ‘joke’ instrument and broadened it’s appeal and brought a new technique for playing it, and the steel.

    from what i understand he was a real gentlemen and a great american. One only had to look at the company he kept.

    88 years. he enrichened my life.

    it brought tears to my eyes to see the news. and this cartoon is a simple, elegant tribute to one of the best.

    Some peoples’ lives are so pathetic that they have to run others down to build themselves up. One more way to be a bully. Ignore them and go on.

    Tom Ashbrook’s “On Point” had an excellent hour on Scruggs’ life.……
