"LEONARD COHEN WAS RIGHT"

This is the back of Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson's jacket. Does anyone know: is this a jacket that is being marketed, or do you think it is something the wearer had made for himself? I'm guessing the latter.

NOW the question is: What was LC right about (in particular, if not everything)?

The first answer that popped into my head was the quote on the back of Songs Of Love And Hate: "They locked up a man who wanted to rule the world. The fools. They locked up the wrong man."

FYI, 'Sleazy' is a member of Throbbing Gristle, the industrial music band now touring the USA at the same time LC is. He was formerly a member of the band called Coil, who covered "Who By Fire" on their album Horse Rotorvator.

From an article in the Asia Times online:

"In geo-political chess, India cannot bring itself to abandon diplomatic snobbery but, with the UN's consent, will apparently sacrifice the blood of its pawn soldiers. Leonard Cohen was right. The wizard of the world has indeed overturned the order of the soul."

The, um, wizard of the world?
