'if I wrote a book about the events leading up to the deaths of 8 Manchester United footballers in the Munich air crash of 1958 and called it "Holocaust", would you consider that acceptable?'

I know you didn't ask me Dave but I would think you had lost touch with reality. If I was a Jew I might be very offended.

I was sorry to see Ryan use the word 'inane'. I've checked what I said at the time and it wasn't inane - I was just expressing an opinion, one shared by several. I gave factual, widely accepted information about the poem but was told I was wrong. But as HK implied in his post here on 7 July:
<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.voy.com/120134/58350.html">http://www.voy.com/120134/58350.html</a>

there is no room here for people whose entire world doesn’t revolve around wallowing in the early demise of Buddy Holly and who want to challenge any of the received narratives about him that get posted here.

Good luck with your book Ryan.
