“Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”

Posted by purplemary54 on April 28, 2014

I’ve posted this song before, but it just seemed like the perfect accompaniment for today’s news.  (I certainly wasn’t going to use this musical travesty.)

It seems that last night Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell were both arrested in a “domestic disturbance.”  To me, that sounds like they got into a screaming fight, probably complete with slammed doors and thrown objects, that was frightening enough to cause someone to call the cops.  When the cops arrived, they were both probably so enraged with each other that they turned it on the cops.  And that earned them both a night in the pokey for disorderly conduct.

Do I think anyone was hitting anyone else?  Probably not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t some slapping or shoving.  Would that constitute abuse?  Probably not.  Is their marriage doomed now?  Who knows?  It may have been doomed for years now, and we just didn’t know about it.  Chances are, we wouldn’t have heard about it at all except for the fact that they’re both well-known musicians.  I suspect they’re both feeling kind of stupid right now.
