    Taylor Swift, the seven-time Grammy winner, is known for her articulate lyrics, so there was nothing surprising about her writing a long column for The Wall Street Journal about the future of the music industry. Yet there's reason to doubt the optimism of what she had to say.

Who wants to be stranded on the side of the road, forced to walk to the nearest filling station or wait for a tow?
