    Yeah, I can't say I follow you, SayNo2NWO. But that's all right. Leonard's not for everyone.

    Now I see why Leonard Cohen never made it to the big time. It's torture to listen to this song.

    I don't often quote lyrics, but these are brilliant: "Complain, complain, that's all you've done, ever since you lost/ if it's not the crucifixion, then it's the Holocaust". Only a true Jew could write (or get away with) a line like that (if anybody objects to that statement, read his outstanding poem about true Jews in The Book Of Longing).

    Sublime. The honky-tonk piano is just so ridiculous.

    I'm on the side that's always lost against the side of Heaven. I'm on the side of snake-eyes tossed against the side of seven.
