The Slice

The limits of free speech

In my family, one thing that is not permitted is criticism of the late John Denver. I occasionally forget this but can count on being promptly reminded.

And that's OK. He wasn't cool. That's for sure. But I wonder how many of us who were trained by peers to disdain him can say we never felt something when hearing one of his songs. 

According to my list, he appeared at Expo '74 on Aug. 26.
