    Brings to mind an old Bob and Ray routine, interviewing "Manny
Gumbiner," a jazz French horn player from New York, who was going along fine
until asked, "And what is your opinion of art?"

    Silence for several beats while Manny thinks it over, then light dawns:
"Ah, uh...Art!  Aw, yeah!  Small town cat, but plays good bass!"

    Kinda brings the question down to where it belongs.
