Rosanne Cash: “I can buy you a drink, also - and tell the truth!”

Rosanne Cash and Kris Kristofferon in bar, arguing about the check. It sounds like a joke, but it's real -- and she was making the point that just because she inducted him (very eloquently, in fact), her wish to honor him extends beyond tribute. One doesn't preclude the other… and how often in celebration, does it turn to a tug-of-war? Just because I see you as you are, honor you for being special, it doesn't mean I can't fete you as well. Indeed, it doesn't indict what I said -- but is merely an adjunct... an exercise in action backing the words that've been uttered. Don't ever let upside down agendas steal that pleasure from you. Though in this case, the legend won.
