Thank you. I thought : At least someone who takes his job seriously. Took his time. The tone is serious, indeed, a reporter's tone. Thank you for the report. I read it fast, but I am under the impression it was written a bit too fast, too. Having read many articles it seems that some info is missing (?), plus, a few typo, and :

"Well, there's a crack in everything that's how the light gets in". I found this in the way :

and what this means exactly :
Nothing of what Cohen told the French journalist, was heard anywhere and neither was it displayed anywhere in the French media. Not even the chat with the English journalist was to be found anywhere.
Is this relating to :
Subsequently, 3 short interviews of about 5 minutes would be granted, before the artist would leave the Canada High Commission, McDonald House in 3rd Grosvenor Sq.
Now I am late in my schedule.

A man of 80 years old. I forget it all the time. Amazing!

Most enjoyable, thanks for sharing. Leonard seemed in good spirits and fine form. Eloquent, funny and witty, a pleasure to listen to.
