Janis Joplin — Down on Me
And she went out with Bill Bennett?
Whoa. Janis Joplin dated Bill Bennett? As in drug czar/Mr. Las Vegas Bill Bennett???
Ha! According to my sources: While a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Texas, Bennett, then a rock fan, was set up on a blind date with Janis Joplin, who was then at the height of her singing career. According to People magazine, the date “must surely rank as one of the least likely blind dates of all time.” In later life, Bennett would condemn rock fans as immoral. When asked what he and Janis did on their date, Bennett said, “Hey, that really is none of your business.” (http://dkosopedia.com/wiki/William_Bennett)
I only wish I were old enough to have been a waiter to serve them on their date.
Rock fans are immoral, but gambling addicts are fine. OK, Bill.
Damn. You learn something new everyday. I was similarly unaware that Mr. Bennett had termed rock fans as “immoral.” The hypocrisy is magnificent.
Book of Virtues my ass.
Heh! I didn’t know about his statement concerning rock fans either, but it makes sense in the whole IOKIYAR way.
