Busted Curmudgeons link; you're missing a terminal l.


Fixed. Hopefully Typepad will follow suit and give back my damn paragraph breaks.

Thanks, Rob, and likewise.

Re: "some parallel universe where ... Yoko Ono never sold her dead husband's songs to Nike".

Doesn't Michael Jackson own the rights to the Beatles' catalog? If I recall correctly, he outbid Paul McCartney, thereby destroying their friendship.


But Ono owns Lennon's solo work. She sold the rights to "Instant Karma" for a Nike commercial.

And then there's this. For anybody who wants to talk about superficial political symbolism that masks a deeper complicity with the exploitation of the third world, this is as good as it gets.

" The Lennon trainer will be the first in a series of annual, artist-designed Peace Chucks. These will appear each year "until global peace is achieved", according to Converse."

I can speak for anyone else, but this makes me *more* likely to commit violence, not less.
