Subject: RE: Distortion of History in Folk Song
"He still deserved it..." Like Salman Rushdie would if they caught up with him? For writing a history book which some people reckon was unfair, about a king who was long dead by the time he wrote it? Or rather for refusing to put his name to a statement saying that the King's daughter was "a bastard" in the charming terminology ofv the day?

I take leave to doubt if you really believe that, Liz.
