Leonard Cohen turns 80; celebrates by starting smoking again...

A favorite songwriter of 
mine, Leonard Cohen, 
turned 80 on Sept 21, the 
International Day of Peace; 
and celebrated his milestone 
by lighting up his first 
cigarette in 30 years.
While I love his music, 
I don't get it-this ain't 
role model stuff but he 
never cared about that in 
the first place. Even if you 
don't think you know his 
music, you've heard it...
I understand his voice
little better now...Oh, Leonard.....
