Wethington said the main problem is that Robert Smith, one of the town's three full-time officers, has a history of being untruthful, using questionable force and generating complaints about his harsh demeanor. And Durant's police chief, he says, is aware of the problems but hired Smith anyway last year even though some of them have to be disclosed to criminal defendants.

I want to know who this is, track him down, and write up his life story. This is a promise.

This shouldn't be too difficult LBI, here's his address and phone number.

Damn! This is why you sought this thread (on the 'what was that thread' thread). How did you stumble upon this now? I'm positive this wasn't there initially.

Colour me very surprised that the address and phone number are Belgian, not Dutch.

I am taking this up. Will report back.

I'm sure I read somewhere about his father being a classical harmonica player but I didn't realize what a big deal he was - Henry Cowell wrote a concerto for him, for instance!

In fact there is some famous story about Villa-Lobos and Segovia having a fite about technique and playability, and in one version I heard it was represented as being overheard by John Sebastian, Jr. while Villa-Lobos was at his house, although once I checked the dates and it didn’t seem to work.

... in case you're wondering about the second track, it's an Italo Disco stomper about a guy who ends up in prison after having sex with an underage girl, so a different Colin Newman... I hope... no, it definitely is.
