Well, what a crappy week it has been. I learned today that Leonard Cohen passed away. A great singer that was also a true poet, which is now a rarity among singers and an almost extinct breed. Incidentally, he was also a fellow Montrealer. At 82, his death may not be tragic, it is nevertheless extremely sad. In his honour, I am sharing today You Want It Darker, the song form his ultimate album. More than a artistic testament, the song had an uncannily prophetic ring. Today more than ever, I think that Leonard Cohen was the last Jewish prophet.
