REALITY-FICTION INTERFACE 'BADLY TORN; MAY NEED VELCRO FASTENERS: It's a kind of tribute: the Georgia House has invited Jamie Foxx to celebrate his oscar for pretending to be Ray Charles by re-enacting Charles' visit to their Atlanta chamber in 1979. Which... yes, it's very nice, and very flattering, but slightly puzzling: the visit of the real Ray Charles was a key, important event; isn't it slightly diminished by inviting a let's pretend Ray Charles to recreate it?
