Lefsetz Just Won't Let Patti Smith Go

Here's his latest, and understand, Bob has been at this now for almost two weeks NON-STOP, but maybe now this will end the whole debate. From the last Lefsetz Letter:

Here is a comment from someone who does not have a dog in this hunt.

"Those insistent on Patti Smith being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame based primarily on Horses is the equivalent of Don Larsen being in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame because he threw a perfect game in the 1956 World Series or from the point of social impact Homer Jones being in the Pro Football Hall of Fame because he was the first ever to spike a football on national TV after scoring a touchdown.

Both events groundbreaking, both still hold enormous impact on society and both worthy of an exhibit detailing the event but not the induction of the individual into their respective Hall's of Fame."
