    Rita: my cousin is deaf; I'm offended that you'd group her with Garth Brooks fans.

    I totally agree with Drew - But I would like to add that there are actually four kinds of people in the world, Those who know Townes is the greatest songwriter who ever walked across the planet, those who haven't discovered it yet, Garth Brooks fans and deaf people, well... technically those last two are the same so, I guess it's only three.

    Townes was and will always be the best. No one gets even close. Greatest songwriter/poet that ever lived.
