Well, like yourself, I'm not in charge.  I'm just one member of the
audience.  In any event, my personal feelings are ambiguous.  The Blues fan
half of me would rather go to the small, low budget, local Blues bar.  The
Blues performer half of me would like to be booked at the House of Blues.

When I say WE get what WE deserve, I'm talking about the big WE.  It's not
necessarily how I feel, or you feel, or perhaps what most Blues-Lers feel.
But it's obviously what most Blues fans want.
