Blindsided

In an effort to set the stage let me ask you how many years do you think Johnny Cash spent in prison? I watched a PBS program recently about the “Man in Black” and his friends. Not much was mentioned in the program, at least the part I saw, about Johnny Cash’s prison stay. After the program was  over I checked it out. I was so sure of his prison time I actually searched “reason for Johnny Cash’s imprisonment” My whole life I thought he spent time in prison and rehabilitated himself into a “good guy”. Foolish me. He actually spent no time in prison. Jail, yes, on a few misdemeanors. His band name was the “Outlaws” and his marketing people promoted the idea he was this bad old jailbird to help him sell songs and it worked. In the big scheme of things no big deal but it sure surprised me, did it you?
