1. At their peak, I think....

A musical triumph for these brilliant people.....in their town.

2. Many would argue that Bridge is their best...

I always identified with I Am a Rock my self, but Sounds of Silence is certainly one of the anthems of the age.

Paul Simon wrote some great poetry into his music.

3. Arguably the best musical-poet laureate of our time.

The genius of Paul Simon will be contemplated 400 years from now.* Just like Mozart or Beethoven are today.





* assuming we don't self-extinguish.

11. There is room for many.

Think of this. The world is digitized and can be recovered from memory....forever.


Off the top of my head, I'd add Lou Reed who must have crossed paths with Trump, many times Lou's view of Trump today would be illuminating.

Think Dirty Boulevard.

6. And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made

Makes me think of Trumpers worshipping their depraved leader!

Lot of overlap there.
