Morrissey was always a miserable prick and the worst thing about the Smiths. Sorry, but it's true.

By the way, I'm in transit today so there won't even be a Banter piece from me. Going to meet up with Cesca in Tennessee for a couple of nights of heavy drinking. There will also, supposedly, be some kind of speaking engagement we're doing as well.
