They often are, or so I find. I do better if I am *very* selective who I listen to on any important subject. "The public" ain't on that list.
That works. I just never felt right taking the money from fools. :/
Actually, IMHO Dolly Parton did NOT go down as "a Dolly Parton", not as you define it. I can't stand country music, and over-made-up women drive me nuts. And Parton can't act any role but Dolly Parton. However, she acts "Dolly Parton" superbly well. (Just rewatch "9 to 5" for an example of that.)
