Thank you for sharing this. I am tickled (as my dad would say) to see it!

I am trusting Leonard isn't rolling over anywhere right now, unless it is to get more comfortable. Although he was not an entertainer in the conventional sense of fame or commercialism, he was an entertainer nonetheless. He was a troubadour, a singer, a poet, and (as my husband calls him) an "entertainer of the spirit", and an entertainer needs to be appreciated and loved. Montreal loves Leonard and isn't too proud to show it. Yay!

Idol worship is against his religion.

The headline in today's print version of the article has been changed to: Montreal's not-so-secret chord.

I 'd rather call him a great artist hero not a saint.

You may call him any name you like but he still has to serve somebody

For some among us there is hardly a difference but I do agree with you ;-)
