Reid returned to the Senate floor Monday with a more conciliatory tone and what he called "a gesture of goodwill," calling for the first time for the confirmation of one of Bush's appeals court nominees that Democrats blocked in the last Congress.
In March it was Greenspan who was the target of Reid's barbs after the owlish overseer of the world's largest economy gave a qualified endorsement to Bush's proposed Social Security and tax reforms.
For the Senate itself, Reid's remarks are something of a departure for a body in which civility is its currency.

 Ex-Stalinist Jimmy Reid supports Scottish Socialist Party
Reid joined the CP in 1948 at the age of 16, where he was educated not in socialism, but in nationalism.
By 1959 Reid was on the national executive and political committee of the CPGB, along with Harry Pollitt and R. Palme Dutt.
This was not yet the Scottish Socialist Party, because Reid remained concerned that "in the background lurks a Trotskyist cell seeking to pull the strings".

 Chapter 24 - By-Election 1971   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Reid was an excellent orator and capable of establishing an instant rapport with his audience.
Those in politics and trade union affairs who knew him had recognised this since the 1950’s when he was active amongst the Clydeside Apprentices and at least a few were of the opinion that the gifts which he displayed then were of a much more direct nature than his attempts at intellectualisation in the 1970’s.
Any limitations which Reid had in strategic understanding were more than filly covered by the abilities of Jimmy Airlie who, in the future, was to "graduate" from the shop floor to fill-time trade union office.

 TERRY REID - SUPERLUNGS
Born in 1949, Reid's vocal talents were apparent at a very early age, belting out the hits of the day perched atop a ladder at the age of 5 while his mother worked as a fruit-picker.
At 16 he caught the eye of Peter Jay, leader of The Jaywalkers who made Terry the front man. The power and conviction of Terry's performances led the band to be asked by The Rolling Stones and Ike and Tina Turner to support them during their 1966 fall tour.
Reid's high voice and delivery is reminiscent of the vocals Robert Plant recorded for Led Zeppelin just several months later, not to mention how Terry's composition "July" echoes the opening half of "Stairway To Heaven," predating that classic by nearly two years.

When his blues wail rises on a torrent of unknown vowels, or he caresses the buzz of the amplifiers in a fey British lilt, Reid oftentimes sounds like the wild seed of Robert Plant and Donovan.
He was a contemporary of both — Reid was Jimmy Page’s first choice to sing for what would become Led Zeppelin — but his work hasn’t resonated in the ensuing years.
Reid’s the typical English folkie for ballads like “July” and “May Fly,” and he’s a blues rambler for Dylan’s “Highway 61 Revisited.” Superlungs has a little of everything, but at its center is Reid’s voice.

My ability to play is like many, hit and miss...mostly miss, but when I've been lucky enough to have Jimmy Reid tell me how to hit a shot, I've pocketed up to 6 consecutive balls that Jimmy nearly fell off his chair exclaiming that they were incredible shots that many pros couldn't make.

Jimmy is a great player from Miami who for years has possessed one of the strongest mental and physical games in pool.
What Jimmy told me was, “Whatever you do, try not to move balls around if you don’t have to.” What I did in a critical hill-hill match in Atlanta recently went against what Jimmy had told me.
All I had to do in this situation was to either spin the cue ball with low right English to make it go long between the eight ball and the rail, or else I could have hit the cue ball with a stun stroke causing it to pass the eight ball on the near side.
