Ah, yes, the old jazz-and-poetry mix, which always maimed both.  Let me
explain.  I was in my twenties when this craze hit the colleges, and my two
favorite things were (1) making love and (2) driving my Jaguar XKE at over
100 miles an hour. 

I assure everyone that doing both at once improved neither.
