There exists a quality behind the musical alliance configured between a man and woman that carry a poetic power that are timeless.  Born upon the wings of Biblical mythology dating back to Adam & Eve, some of our most valued milestones in music consist of this seemingly simple pairing of the sexes - think of the jazz styling between Steve and Edie, or Ella and Louis; or the fragile folk of Ian & Sylvia; or even the early pairing of Lindsay Buckingham & Stevie Nicks before Fleetwood Mac discovered them, and the point becomes clearer.

Ted Kolhagen is showing me how to ring a Salvation Army bell. He takes time from his red-kettle storefront duty on a crisp afternoon after Thanksgiving and hands me an extra. The chime that soars so clear and rhythmic from Ted's bell is muffled and off cadence from mine.

Dear Guy, Is it true that women think sexuality is not fair? My brother's girlfriend said she thinks that women got the raw deal where sensitivity and drive are concerned. Can she ACTUALLY think that? I can't see why women think it's so unfair when they obviously have so much control over whether or not there is even going to BE any sex! I say that WOMEN make every rule and we have to follow them like dogs! Get me out of this one! -The Brother in Law Dear Bro, Interesting analogy.
