Re: “Bob Dylan and Leon Russell

And I forgot to rate the stars: at least four.

What jcov40 said.

(And, jcov40), yes, "reappraisal" and "appraisal" are the terms of art.)

Re: “All Buttholes Considered: The Imagine Cafe Story in Tweets

How surprising it is that a Shakesperean like yourself did not find an illustrrtive quotation from the appropriately named character in "A Midsummer Night's Dream!"

Re: “"Million Dollar Quartet" Wants to Be Your Teddy Bear

Hey, Pesky, your backgrounding is so good (as usual), I was hoping you would also deal with the mystery of how it was that Johnny Cash is in the famous picture but is nowhere to be found in the equally famous audio. I'll bet you know. Please tell us.

Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

Hey, Emily, thanks for the lifeline! Of course, of course. There's an old saying: Even Homer nods. If the old Greek bard lived in our time, he'd probably have jet lag, too. That, plus a power outage upon return from half a world away and absorption in a cover story, increased the nodding in this case. I had also misplaced my glasses and was writing through squints. (Not claiming to be Homer, btw, unless Homer Simpson.) Fix made. And, again, my thanks. And mes apologies to Julie and David, both of whom I know right well.

Re: “Even in his off-duty time, Jim Strickland had to face the weather.

Ooops! Thanks for the correction. (Short-term memory musta shorted out.) Note that, as of today, you're still powerless. Bummer. Good party, under the circumstances.

Re: “Whistle-Blower’s Crime

I know it's bad policy to respond to "moverhill," who I suspect is a needy character we've seen before in our comment spaces bearing numerous other aliases, but there's an ultimate and obvious idiocy in his silly accusations that needs to be pointed out.

Yes, "moverhill," I've "inserted myself" into this piece. Duh. It would be odd if I didn't, since this is not news coverage at all. It's openly and avowedly a personal Viewpoint about a specific autobiographical experience. To avoid "inserting myself" into a reminiscence of this kind would be damned near impossible.

That's really all I have to say. If autobiography offends you, don't read it. Meanwhile, neither I nor any of the other respondents here are in need of a lecture from you about ethics, a subject which I suspect you know very little about, "moverhill." And indisputably you know even less about the principles of journalism, which clearly you've never practiced.

Please, for your sake and ours, get a life. .
