Fighting words: Adrienne, Ms. million-watts-of-A.C.-power herself, has 4 out of 7 right.

  • Dogs are better pets than cats Now, I’m a dog man. Lived in a house with a cat for a few weeks. It was OK, but you won’t catch me turning into Joe Pennant (who liked him a cat he lived with up until a month ago)
  • Marvin Gaye is a sexier vocal stylist than Al Green That’s a gimme. Gaye made some fine music while he thought he had a shot at being Sinatra or a neo-Nat King Cole, but took it to the next level when he went pop (as we all know by now). Green, in comparison, hasn’t ever felt compelled to try to stretch beyond his best efforts (“Still In Love With You” edging out “Let’s Stay Together”). The lovely covers Green does from time to time are excluded from consideration in this.
  • Broiling beats frying Nope. Two words: Fried chicken.
  • Only 4 gospels comprise Christian theology Let’s see, do I really feel like putting up a fight about Essene stuff or the Aquarian gospels? Nah. Maybe another day.
  • Whitman’s poetry is better than Sandberg’s Well, OK.
  • Southerners are stupid You can kill that noise rightaboutnow.
  • All blacks have natural rhythm … even if it’s only the “white-boy shuffle” — right, Ms. Paul Beatty fan?
