Simon & Garfunkel/ Paul Simon

Given that I am the egghead white father of two non-white sons, you might think I’d be a big fan of egghead white Paul Simon and his exploration (co-option?) of pretty much every non-white musical style ever invented. You would be wrong. (On the other hand, I had an Uncle Al and a Cousin Betty who were indeed “pals” and who both died prematurely, so the song about Al and Betty always brings a lump to my throat, for reasons Mr. Simon never intended.)
