I think that we should give the man a break; he was bloody British; what do you expect? Consider what the Charles River Valley Boys did to the Beatles and the Americans have been doing to Shakespeare for a couple of hundred years. The interconnectedness of cultures will eventually bring better international connectedness, empathy and understanding.   A man who searches so far beyond what 99.9% of us would explore to find what he wants to enjoy, participate in, and share so enthusiastically deserves praise.
