no grace in graceland

Tonight I’m listening to Paul Simon’s Graceland while I clean the frig.  Being married to a South African of colour (not misspelled), having spent time in the townships, and fairly familiar with the South African “sound”, I can’t help but wonder if the South Africans got proportionately the profit for their contribution to that album, or if Mr. Simon was just another “diamond dealer”.
