Oh, I think they close down many of the possibilities.
 The story heard is the story interpreted in a million

person.  The story seen and heard becomes something
less open to interpretation.

Do you really think Joe has a "raspy voice?"  Maybe
you're thinking of Larry Block.  :D

I'd argue that Joe's voice is about as far from raspy
as you can get.
