Well, for one thing, Cat Steven's did NOT write
"Morning Has Broken", so I have no qualms about
listening nor singing these beautiful lyrics written
by
Eleanor Fujeon" in 1931 as a children's hym. Cat
Stevens recorded it in 1971 -- 40 years later.

Secondly, even though I despise what Elia Kazan did
during the McCarthy era, I wouldn't have to think
twice about seeing a viewing of "On the Waterfront" or
"A Streetcar Named Desire." Wonderful films
displaying phenomenal talent in the best possible
light. The man was a master of his craft!

If I waited for anyone to have the same values as me
BEFORE I looked at or listened to their art, I'd be
living in a very sterile artistic world.

As for Woody Allen, his "art" has been on a steady
decline after "Annie Hall." Some of his best stuff IS
his early comedy and his books, such as "Without
Feathers." This stuff is hilarious and soul-renewing.

So, I guess I can easy seperate the singer from the
song, so to speak, especially when the singer's
"voice" has changed and deteriorated with age or
through abuse. This sometimes makes early work all
that more special. People who compromise their souls
seem to also compromise their talent and natural
gifts.

I think another good example of this is Elvis Presley.
I guess I could go on and on.
