I am impressed they are only just cutting payroll now.

How come we didn’t see any of those viral videos here of musicians just playing for the enjoyment of others and to keep our spirits up?

Lazy, ungrateful moochicians  :)

There are several on Facebook and the Symphony web site, including yours truly.

Oops. My bad.

Guess they didn’t go viral.

I’d retract the moochicians, but I like it too much.

I think the musicians need to organize, occupy, march around and yell.  Maybe go loot a music store...

People have had their payroll cut, sanmarcomatt and sandyshoes, why are you being facetious? It's seems unnecessary and mean-spirited.

I’m sorry, apparently we have not been introduced. I am Sanmarcomatt. I expect you will get to know my posting style over time.

It was really just the “ why” that I questioned . Hasn’t  everyone read that story about the frog and the scorpion?

Not until now...   but I have heard of the old man/lady and the frozen snake.

I thought I had heard of that story but if you are saying your version involved a couple....that might be a different kind of story.
