RIP Lou Reed, integrity personified.

RIP Lou Reed 1942 – 2013

Artist of genuine integrity and talent who fearlessly portrayed the full spectrum of life around him and who relentlessly upheld core human values;  ‘telling it like it is’ regardless of career-limiting consequences

Dirty Boulevard” from the 1989 New York album

Give us your hungry, your tired, your poor; we’ll piss all over them
  That’s what the Tory/Lib Dem coalition say.
