    i fail to see how the company he keeps makes any difference, except to maybe point out that jerks can come from any political leaning.

    "If the whole world's singing your songs
    And all you're paintings have been hung
    Just remember what was yours is everyone's from now on
    And that's not wrong or right
    But you can struggle with it all you like
    You'll only get uptight"
