  • Hard News: Friday Music: I like your old…,

    It’s pretty much the opposite of literature

    And visual arts, and in fact most other forms of music. "True" pop is supposedly more ephemeral, but it's full of seasoned pro writers, producers, session players churning out hits. And classical music, whoa. Even Mozart was showing some signs of promise when he died at 37.

    Without knowing too much, would it have looked weird if he didn't agree to be her referee? If I had worked with a Mayor on anything I'd expect to get mileage from it in job applications.
