Big Deal

Today, Randall Stuart Newman is 69. This from the liner notes to his sardonic masterpiece Sail Away: "While I don't have any belief in religion - far from it - I am interested in it. It's a gigantic idea. It's the biggest hit in history - the invention of God, because you know you're going to die. That's my very clinical assessment of it. And so I'm interested in the subject and have written about it a number of times. It's a big deal in the life of the world." Many happy returns, maestro.
