"The culture of Music Row? Certainly, you must go along to get along. It's a sin to have an opinion. It's a greater sin to express it.
"In reality, we all have opinions, though the rules of Music Row say all strongly-held opinions must mimic those of the listener. There's not a lot of conceding the right to live and let live, let alone the right to agree to disagree.
"I believe in both. The evidence is in my blend of news and commentary, which must be distinguished from blogging. With all due respect to bloggers, many of them neglect to do one or more of the following: Seek and verify facts, update, post corrections, link or cite source material and obtain permission to use copyrighted intellectual property." - STACY HARRIS
