Muskogee, OK — The death of the legendary Merle Haggard has stunned the country music community. Haggard died Apr. 6 at age 79. Haggard is best known for his songs, “Okie from Muskogee” and “Working Man.” He also was part of the outlaw group of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash.

An even bigger shock came shortly after Haggard’s death when his lawyer read his last will and testament. Haggard left his entire estate to Interpride Enterprises, a Bakersfield, CA-based LGBT group that puts on Pride parades around the world. Many thought Haggard to be an ultra social conservative, but Haggard believed in equal rights.

Gish Gallop contacted Interpride and spoke to Raul Merman. We asked how they felt about the donation.

“It is absolutely wonderful,” said Raul. “We can do so much with this money—research and helping us expand our various events. We plan on creating a Merle Haggard float for this year’s Pride parade in San Francisco on June 26th. It should really be something.”

The donation is expected to be in the millions of dollars. There has been no comment from Merle Haggard’s family.

Cleveland Sam
Cleveland Sam, born Sam C. Sharpe, is a hero, a hero to anyone who knows him in Ohio. At the mere age of 7, he rescued a small girl from the clutches of a herd of llamas outside his boyhood home of Cleveland, OH. By the age of 12, he had already rescued over 14 children from near deaths ranging from freak ice cream truck accidents, to drownings in neighbors' Dough Boy Pools. But his heroism didn't stop at youth. No sir. As a teenager, he saved the entire cheerleading squad of his local high school from certain death with their "party van" caught fire during a local "rager." He writes for Gish Gallop because he feels he needs to rescue it. He's probably correct.
