Dear Elton: You’re Not Forgiven

eltonjohnmp_63275_L_1234902304Yes, I know we’re supposed to bow down before the fact that Elton John‘s just-announced concert to raise money for the legal challenge to California’s Prop 8 is entirely admirable. But neither it, nor the good works of the singer’s Elton John AIDS Foundation, can disguise the fact that Mr. John took one million dollars of blood money to sing earlier this year at the fourth wedding of that inveterate hate-monger, Rush Limbaugh. Mr. John is an opportunist: anything for publicity, whether the effect is helpful or harmful.
