TO SPEND A DELIGHTFUL HOUR ON the phone with a guy who’d been Jackie Wilson’s road manager back in the day. Which put me in mind of the Van Morrison song, “Jackie Wilson Said,” and then the Tears for Fears pastiche, “Brian Wilson Said.”
Which makes me want to write something called “Robert Heinlein Said,” but … well, I do that several times a week anyway, so.. WTF.
This time, it’s that RAH said, “If everybody knows something, it usually isn’t so by half.” Like: sugar making kids hyperactive. NOT.
Or, like: catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is real, is happening, and we need to dislocate the entire global economy to ameliorate its worst effect.
