And g'night to you and your mate.

"Jimmy, what did you do in the war?
Did you know what my Dad was fighting for?
Did your play call a soldier a leech,
After he protected your freedom of speech
And your sycophant audience cried for more?"

You see, that's the thing. He made a fine living out of decorating your Chinese whispers. A bit like your rather odd comments above. I've nothing but respect for the artist himself in abstract. I don't decry those who put a human touch to the person behind, yet ignoring three quarters of what someone posts is definitely your style Jim. Not to mention making assumptions on who is posting.

I'm sure you do know a bit about him. Many many people do in fact, and most of them maybe give a more balanced view? Still, it's a bit like pointing out to my granddaughter that the gruffolo has a rather unpleasant side to him.
