Ric actually has highly refined taste in music, which is why it pleases me to suggest that he loves Right Said Fred.
Ric is a Jazz aficionado. (I prefer to call them “Jazzies.” He prefers it when I don’t.) He subscribes to a magazine about the state of Jazz music and the careers of the great Jazz musicians of our day. The way he tells it, the magazine is a monthly litany of apathy, poverty, and degradation.
It is called Downbeat, which he agrees with me, is apt.
