Paul Simon has brought joy to so many for so long, but on this night he made Rayna Ford's dream come true. During a show in Toronto on May 7, Rayna Ford, a fan from Newfoundland, called out for Simon to play "Duncan," and said something to the effect that she learned to play guitar on the song. In a moment of astonishment and disbelief, Paul Simon invited her on stage, handed her a guitar and asked her to play it for the crowd. When she strapped on the guitar, the audience went crazy. In a few strums, the band played along, tears ran down Rayna Ford's cheeks and Simon stood by her side in smiles.

That's nice, I guess. What if she'd sucked and everybody had booed?

(Still hate him, if you couldn't tell.)

Paul wouldn't have cared, as long as he was getting laid and paid.

"Back to your cave, Scrooge."

I think we have a new slogan for 2011, or for a 2012 presidential run.
