A slippery slope getting greased for an avalanche? And whose fussing? Is this, one more, issue?

I don’t know what to think about David Bowie dying. Should I even have a say?

Of all artists, I remember him in my humble rock ‘n roll beginnings but won’t reminisce. All futura, a tomorrows man. Blew his trumpet loud when he could.

‘We’ve got lazy and let things get out of control’

Tap quotes Alex Jones, whilst affirming the obvious wisdom to acknowlege fair-do's, over woolly distractive thinking and "better not".
