The major news of Christmas Day was the death of soul singer James Brown, at age 73. Substitute anchor Russ Mitchell (no link) filed CBS' obituary: "He lit up the stage with his tight pants, provocative moves and electric voice." Mitchell included clips from his own interview. About nicknames--"I like the Godfather of Soul. I do not want to be King." And about race relations--"The black man will never be free in America. I believe it. I am living it." ABC had Miguel Marquez (subscription required) recap Brown's 50-year career. Simply put, "his music and his moves make you feel good."
