Rush lawsuit parody

[Rush to Judgement]

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the latest development in the Alex Lifeson versus the Ritz-Carlton saga; a federal judge decided that Geddy Lee and Neil Peart aren't entitled to damages stemming from Alex Lifeson's scuffle with deputy sheriffs at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Naples, Florida on New Year's Eve 2004. Inspired by this development, Stephen Schneider, a writer and self-proclaimed armchair musicologist, wrote a parody of the case in a column in the Orlando Weekly Newspaper last week. He penned a Notice of Civil Action against Rush for damages as a result of being a Rush fanatic. It's funny - certainly worth a read.

Yes, funny stuff.
But how, the Rush fan will ask, can someone make such fun of Rush-fandom? Whence came such satire, from what darkened place? Did Don Henley have a hand in this?

Tragedy dressed up in the mask of comedy.

Now, am I being serious?

Does it matter?

Rush is great to those of us who love them. That's all ye know in this world and all ye need know.

Stop me now.

Okay, you're through.
