article on the Grammys is summarized as follows on the Merc web page:
When I was a kid, I was watching a classic sitcom like All in the Family or I Love Lucy, and a character was playing the violin incredibly badly. My father pointed out that it takes talent to make such horrible music. I feel the same way about the sentence I quoted; it takes talent to string twenty-odd words together in such a jarring manner. What does the first half of the sentence have to do with the second? How do the choices of the Grammy nominators tell us anything about the music-buying public?
