I had sent an email to SONY to update the link address to LEONARD COHEN | HALLS OF FAME on their Leonard Cohen links page, and boy were they quick to respond and make the correction http://www.leonardcohen.com/us/friends/links so I decided to email them about the Kennedy Center Honors. I sent them the link and told them to nominate Leonard Cohen. There should be hundreds of people at SONY going to nominate Leonard now! :D I should have done this for Canada's Walk of Fame. We'll have to wait for next year. Leonard could actually get the Kennedy Center Honor before getting Canada's Walk of Fame or Hollywood Walk of Fame. Canada's Walk of Fame is currently leading in the poll at the bottom of the LEONARD COHEN | HALLS OF FAME site http://www.leonardcohenhallsoffame.blogspot.com KCH is second and HWF is third.

Here is the form to contact SONY http://hub.sonymusic.com/about/feedback.php

Good thinking, Roy. Anyone with a Twitter account - there are thousands of Leonard Cohen fans out there in twitter-land and it might be a good idea to try to reach them via a "sweet tweet" with the link? :D - asking them to recommend Leonard Cohen for Kennedy Center Honors. And retweet

Hi everyone - for anyone interested and able to access - this show airs tonight - on CBS, 9:00 - 11:00 p.m.
I've watched it over the years and usually - it is always "worth the watch."
I love to see artists honored for their lifetime contribution to the arts.
