    Just to remind folks here about the minds of the masses ...

    It's a lost cause, people.

    Regards, Art. (Let them eat cake! Or listen to Brittney, in this case. More popcorn for me, though.)

    Thanks for the link David.
    A thought-provoking experiment in context and art.

    ...The article while interesting reeks with the condescension of of the self appointed elite. ...

    I thought this was a pretty neat article.

    I think it proves that well known statement that "beauty is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder".

    I wish it had been Union Station instead, through which I pass twice a day, every day.

    I met my girlfriend in college by way of her being a street violinist in NYC. I was at NYU and she'd been out of Julliard for a couple years. After hearing her play the first time I insisted she tell me where/when she'd play next, and things progressed from there. She wasn't much to look at, but neither was I and all she had to do was play the cadenza from Beethoven's violin concerto and any interest that may have been flagging was immediately refocused.

    Talent, like intelligence, is an aphrodisiac.

    Fascinating link. Disturbing in a way, too. Imagine, risking a Strad on the streets of Washington DC! It's difficult to imagine that he didn't draw a crowd, considering his talent and those selections. Doing that gig near quitting time might have been different: Even in the nation's capitol there must be many people with a strong work ethic and a rigid schedule. Given more freedom many might have paused.

    Dear David,

    Gorgeous story!

    Thanks!

    Not sure it told us anything we couldn't have guessed -- but a superb confirmation of suspicions.

    Cheers,

    R.
