Yeah, I should have just ignored the whole Cub Band business and kept my
mouth shut.  Lornetta says I need more practice at that than on my horn, and
she thinks the horn gets terribly neglected!  But I got a query from the
young woman (we once said "young lady" but now that seems to be an insult?)
who was writing a piece on the Cubs Band, and I answered as best I could;
then was a trifle miffed to discover that (like many editors I've had) she
had spiked my stuff.  So...there I went...

I was a trifle rough on Jazzman Joe (whoever HE is), but I'm sure he'll live
and be well enough to yell at me from now on.
