Utah Phillips' son has started a blog in the wake of Utah's recent health troubles. Apparently he's been in the hospital for about a week with a serious heart condition. He decided over the weekend that a transplant was not in his best interests, and he's now trying to improve enough to be able to get out of the hospital.

If you're interested in learning about what a great man Utah is, you could check out the podcasts he's been doing since retiring from touring in the past year, see him on YouTube, or get his CDs. A giant in the history of America, a great storyteller of the working man and laborer, is near the end of the road, and it's a shame how few people know it.
