Two decades later, he remains high on the leaderboard, bested only by the likes of Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Garth Brooks. And yet people—critics at the big magazines, almost to a man; bloggers of more discriminating musical taste ; lazy comics seeking easy punchlines—revile Billy Joel. They detest him on an almost visceral level. But guys like Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Rotten have a default credibility that Joel will never be granted…. The problem is that Joel never seemed cool, even among the people who like him. He has no intrinsic coolness, and he has no extrinsic coolness. If cool were a color, it would be black—and Joel would be kind of a burnt orange. He drops F-bombs.

My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I didn't expect to fall in love with him I am Australian by birth and have lived here for 20 odd years so have no family here other than my 17 year old son and the many wonderful friends I call family I am very extroverted, work full time and have a side business and can keep myself busy every day I would rather know now it will not work Does anyone find they are a bit unemotional. How am I certain. I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection. And there is NO taking them off to wear a sleeveless shirt, cute sun dress or regular, girl-length shorts in the summer. Some of my family approves of my marriage and some does not.
