Jandek's nothing if not a pragmatist, so why go to the effort of taking
his church friends all the way to Glasgow?  I'm glad he's done this, even
if just to debunk the idea that he's just some kind of tortured artist.

Why now?  Perhaps he's finally quit his white-collar job and doesn't need
to hide his identity any more -- or perhaps some of the other accountants
saw the documentary -- or whatever.
