I'm simply basing this on past postings, such as the one in which you told
Leonard you thought it was weird -- in a "go figure" sort of way -- that
they'd ask a white guy to teach a group of kids about the blues in Alabama.
I was wondering at that point why you just didn't drop out of the business.
  The rest can be put under the "more popular is better, though we can
disagree" which means you must suck, 'cause you're not selling platinum and
don't have blues and major music magazines calling so much you have to hire
a press agent.
