The bloom is back
Last week I argued that guilt was the motivating force behind the current Loretta Lynn love-in. That column can be found here.

A taste:

If Loretta Lynn were to pen a song about the celebratory critical reception to her new record, Van Lear Rose, it might be entitled If You'd Loved Me Then Like You Love Me Now. Or maybe Your Kisses Came Too Late. Either way it would tell the tale of an unappreciative husband, so inattentive he drove his wife to distraction. Only after she came round with her new beau, a dashing, charismatic younger man, did that husband remember why he'd fallen for her so many years ago.
