The Performer’s Ultimate Sin — It’s Pretty Obvious*

The late writer Lester Bangs wrote, “The ultimate
sin of any performer is contempt for the audience.”

Apparently, 75 million Americans don’t care or just
don’t get that the Loser/Performer has committed

the ultimate sin of contempt and it’s against them.
Thank the Lord, the show has just about run its course

and is about to be canceled and one has to wonder,
“What show have the fans been watching for four

years?” Of course, it is a fact that the abused sidle
up to the abuser. “You love me don’t you, daddy?”

*The Bangs’ quote is from The Writer’s Almanac.
