I only read excerpts from Lorelei’s book. I didn’t know she claimed to come up with that line from Wasted Time. For some reason I thought it was Loree Rodkin.

Nice summary, Soda, thanks!

So far it appears Spotify has not responded to the letter from Ultraviolet.

The most prominent response to #MuteRKelly came from Spotify, which removed the singer's songs from its playlists in early May. "When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful (for example, violence against children and sexual violence), it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator," the company said in a statement at the time. Within weeks, the service killed the policy, saying it would not "play judge and jury" regarding artist behavior.
Just putting that out because of the mention of Spotify in this thread. Looks like there should be no worry about Spotify determining who gets played and who doesn't.

I'm glad to hear it. In addition to the larger philosophical question, it opens up a can of worms where they have to start devoting time to deciding who's "bad enough" to get banned and justifying their decisions... perhaps this group's letter showed them that and made them decide to throw out the policy. If so, the letter really backfired!

Apparently not. It's a freaking farm!

He talks about it here:
"So when he finds himself on his hands and knees tending his vegetable farm in Malibu, he is reminded of his father's words, 'Someday, son, you will come to appreciate the land.'"

LOL ! Don has PLENTY of money. I know the sites are so-so but Celebrity Net Worth estimates his net worth at $225 million dollars. Any kind of land in Malibu is a smart investment.
