The honeymoon is over.
The Paul Simon?
Waiting for details before I pass judgment.
The arrest report documents that they were shouting “Betty!” and “Al!” at each other when police arrived.
Peace, love, and my face is bleeding.
Paul Simon is 72. Wow. I am getting old.
Did he try to choke her in the shallow water?
It wasn't even Edie's band. Label wanted the name change to highlight her.
Is it too early to start those rumors?
Eh.....the last one sounded better in my head.

“we’re not aware of too many things, we know what we know if you know what we mean...”
Better get out the back, Jack.
Take it on the lam, Sam......
The argument was whether “What I am” originated with her or with Popeye.
And though hes not overly vocal about his views, he isnt completely out of the game either. Hes a lifelong Democrat, supporting such Democrats through history as Michael Dukakis and Hillary Clinton and, over the years, giving over $49,000 to Democrats and Democrat support organizations.9
Hes been fairly vocal about universal health care, particularly when it comes to health care for children. Simon even appeared and spoke at a press conference alongside some of the countrys highest-ranking Democrats in favor of state-sponsored health care for kids.10
Too bad they couldn’t work in the word “singer” or something, so that we would know who or what they were talking about.
Sometimes the media seems to think that we are all just like their social circle, and already share their personal interests.
