comment In “thin green candle”, can these adjectives be considered cumulative?
A site dedicated to Leonard Cohen lyrics has the line without a comma after thin, as does a contemporaneous (and remarkably hostile) review in Rolling Stone magazine. The latter seems less likely to be quoting Cohen's lyrics directly off a lyric sheet, however, since it chops the lines into half-length pieces.

comment The “wrought /wreaked havoc” misunderstanding
Yes, I disagree with that view. Viewing the contention in the context of chronological usage of both "wrought havoc" and "wreaked havoc," I don't see how it can be made to hold up.
