The Best and the Worst…

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst are filled with passionate intensity.” Yeats said that, but so did Lou Reed, quoting him live at the Bottom Line, NYC. Narrative by Jeff Bridges in the fabulous film “The Only Living Boy in New York” opening scene. Who remembers this title from a Simon & Garfunkel song?
