Hello, and thanks for Discchord, absolutely invaluable.
Just writing to say that the Wikipedia entry I saw certainly doesn't say he hates America, but rather that there was a potential misunderstanding over a song, with both he and the White House saying there was never any insult intended. As to the 16 dollars a lesson, that's a real rip-off, though whether by him or Faber etc. is unclear...

Yes, I know he doesn't actually hate America. It, like most of my writings in the margins here, was intended as a joke.

[Tim Edit: Sorry. That wasn't funny enough to allow a racial joke here.]
