I'm not a band leader, or even a musician, but as you know was a police 
officer for 30 years and the reaction to such an incident by my friends, 
colleagues, and senior officers was likely to have been in the following 

"You lucky b-----d".
"I remember her, the Chicago bicycle. Did the penicillan take long to work."
and similar frivilous remarks.

Incidently in this country the employment laws are such that there is a 
pretty good chance that Bob Greene would be able to make a small fortune by 
suing the paper for unlawful dismissal.
