"Personally, at present, I feel more like parodying Jim Carroll's questions rather than responding to them. "
I'm sure you do - it's far easier than answering them - though your Mona Lisa analogy, if aimed at untalented hacks making our beautifully thoughtful folk songs, is a perfect one - I wish I'd thought of it
The lot of you are running around like headless chickens, which, for me, is indicative that none of you have thought this through
You are very reminiscent of Billy Connolly's old joke "If you want to confuse a policeman ask him a question"
