Is it in fact unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins, is it better to burn out or fade away?

Ministry of Silly Blogging
lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right side of the blog isn't silly at all and the left side merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate post. But I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly.
Hey, it's worth a shot. Isn't it? Worth a shot?
What's to tell, really? I'm a sarcastic Fat Guy with little concern for the feelings of others if it would sacrifice my amusement. I spent most of my life in and around Milwaukee, WI, including my formative years. Went to college in Texas, then moved back north for 15 years before the wife and I packed up our lives to try a new start in Tampa, FL, land of the oversized insects and mutant frogs.
Now we've moved to Ohio, wish us luck! It may not be 'home', but so much closer to the real thing. Is that a hill?

I have received none. Zilch. Bupkus. Not a sausage. But not without trying.
So please, if you'd like to pay me to heartily endorse your product and/or service, just let me know, because I could use the money.
Or a Cadillac. A Cadillac would be nice.
I am a product of the 70's, the same decade that produced disco and glam rock. It was also the same decade as the great fuel crisis.
I don't remember the fuel crisis, so either it never hit Wisconsin, or I was just unaware of my father putting two gallons of gas into a car that got two miles to the gallon.
However, on Sunday, I faced my own little fuel crisis: our local stations were all out of gas. If I had gas in the car, this little tidbit wouldn't bother me at all. As it was though, the dash had been announcing 'FUEL RANGE LOW' for over a day, and I really felt like I needed a cushion (having run out of gas before...pushing my car once was more than enough.)
I was able to eke out a gallon from the gas can at home, to buy me a day or two until the stations can restock. And since it's been see-through-time hot the past few weeks, my lawn isn't growing, anyway. However, driving on 'E' makes me edgy, and not in a good way (like KISS in a world of Bee Gees and Gloria Gaynor.) Instead, I'm just anxious, waiting for the worst to happen (like a Bee Gees fan at a KISS concert.)
But I can just hope that when I can fill up again, the prices are closer to 1975 than 2011. Ah, the blind optimism of youth. And if I can't refill before I run out completely, I'll end up walking or riding my bike.
