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

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.
