While I agree with Elizabeth Alexander that "love" is the mightiest word, I might add...that on a cold winter's night, when the wind has gone out of you a million ways, and the house is empty, and you're a bit blue, but a bit hopeful too, that a pretty mighty word might also be "royalty," followed by "statement," followed by "check." Ladies and gentlemen, I've officially made money off a song I wrote. And to top it all off, the letter began: "Dear Songwriter, Composer, and Publisher." Thanks Jason! Thanks Guiding Light!
