"She said you gotta do your fair share
Now cough up half the rent
I treat my body like a temple
You treat yours like a tent
But the right word at the right time
May get me a little hug
That's the difference between lightning
And a harmless lightnin' bug
~ Jimmy Buffet - from his song "Fruitcakes"

    The difference between Jimmy Buffet the public persona, and the real
Jimmy Buffet, is as different as lightning and a lightnin' bug.  Go to
Key West, his "Margaritaville", and talk to people there.  They have the
lowdown on Buffet, that he's such a hypocrite, and they hate him.  If I
were him I wouldn't show my face down there without guards; -- him or
his Coral Reefers.  They act like a bunch of pot smokin' hippies, and he
claims to descend from pirates, but he turns in people - the real
pirates of the sea today - for selling it.   And most in the Conch
Republic smoke it.

    I like his songs tho.....
