Channeling My ‘Cousin’ Will

I've been told all my life that I'm kin to the late Newspaper Columnist-Political Humorist Will Rogers. I wouldn't know how to go about proving or disproving that.

I don't think I'm kin to the leader of the Randy Rogers Band either; however he and I used to exchange e-mails back when he was a college student in San Marcus, Texas and I lived in the Dallas area and was writing lyrics. I remember one time he wrote to tell me, "I'm not sure I'm cut out for this (music) business." I replied that was spoken like a true Rogers.
