Dearth of a Ladies' Man

      Unbelievable:   it seems that Leonard Cohen is broke, allegedly ripped off by his former business manager, and now he's suing her for roughly $5million.   More interesting is the profile written by Macleans' Brian Johnson, describing Cohen's supposedly "lavish" lifestyle; it sounds like we have more in our lifestyles than Leonard does.  

      In other news: the UK has decided to create its own Walk of Fame called "The Avenue of Stars." The first inductees?   Alec Guinness, Laurence Olivier, Peter Sellers, Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, The Rolling Stones, Shirley Bassey, The Two Ronnies, Billy Connolly (!), Dame Edna Everage (!?!?!?!), John Cleese, Ricky Gervais, Nicole Kidman, among others.   Welcome to Tony Blair's further-Americanoed Britain.
