Ever since Carly Simon released the song "You're So Vain" there has been controversy over the relatively uncaring man she sings about. Essentially every man with whom, she had a relationship or her ex-husband James Taylor, has been considered as a possible subject for the song.
I believe I can eliminate Warren Beatty.
One of the lines in the song tells how her paramour "flew your Learjet to Nova Scotia, to see the total eclipse of the sun." However, the Federal Aviation Administration has its database of pilots on line and open to the public for inspection. I looked up John Travolta, who claims to be a pilot, and he's in there. However, Warren Beatty is not on that list. This leads me to the conclusion that he is not the person named in the song.

This is where I make comments on any subject I find of interest. My political comments are in the Politics section, and technical items are in the Computers section. Note, if you want to make a comment, e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sorry that I had to disable comments, but after I had deleted the 300th worthless piece of spam comment on this blog and receiving exactly zero valid comments, I decided to stop allowing spammers to excrement all over me and my blog. If you have *anything* at all to say, send it to me in e-mail; if it is even the slightest bit relevant - even if I don't agree with it, I will post it. (As soon as I find a way to stop spammers from posting junk I'll allow direct comments.) Note that if you are a visitor and post a comment, it defaults to "draft" meaning I have to approve it before it is visible, so if you're posting spam, don't bother, nobody will see it.
