Hello, me again. I've been thinking about this, and I'd just to take a step back and apologise for any rash or unfair judgements I might have made. I think when we start getting into the nitty gritty of a rant, we end up veering impossibly from the main point and getting boxed into awkward corners that we didn't want to get into. My main point was simply that I personally would have had more respect for Linda if she hadn't joined the band, and I believe it may have been more beneficial for both of them as individuals if she hadn't. I would've liked to see her continue her own career and utilise her own talents, but as I said somewhere else, if she'd simply come along for the Wings ride to be with her family, I wouldn't have had any criticism to make because (stunning as this is :) I'm actually not such an anarcho-feminist tyrant that I insist on every woman HAVING to work in order to retain her personal integrity. I'm in favour of choice, for everyone. The debate was, as I saw it, purely about whether or not she should have been in the band. Obviously the comm is divided pretty much down the middle on this, and that's great. I freely admit I'm not a Wings expert, so perhaps my opinion is essentially flawed from the get-go.

Hopefully you don't think there's anything too appalling in this comment, because to be honest love, playing the bitch all the time can grind a girl down. Sometimes even I want to lay down my sword and just get on with everyone! :)

Me, too, babe. Me, too. :D

As I told Z below, I was feeling extraordinarily pissy to begin with, and his rant was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so to speak. You know? I mean, it IS an issue I have definite opinions about, but I wouldn't have been so damned belligerent in expressing them if I hadn't been spoiling for a fight in the first place.

And I think I just spelled "belligerent" wrong. Damn.
