Quick somebody call homeland security and proclaim a red alert, this is sheer 
terrorism at it's worst and now it has come home to terrorize musicians.

There ought to be a law, Sue em for Grand Theft of musicians salaries, soon 
to follow, bartenders, waitresses, doormen, taxi drivers, restaurants will 
close, the liquor industry will go out of business, illegal drugs will disappear 
for lack of market, politicians will lose billions in payoffs, we will have 
homeless musicians living and playing for the homeless in the parks.

There is??   Play a Sinfonia go to jail, with it, those jail gigs don't pay 
enough to hire OKOM musicians anyway.   And make it a lifetime sentence if they 
use a drum/rhythm machine or patch too.

Then Somebody ought to enforce it.   This High Tech progress must be stopped!

Now on   the serious side if musicians want to be counted in this issue, they 
should take it to the streets of New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, 
Chicago, and any other city with any live music venues at all.    One massive 
Nationwide Play- in on the streets, civil unrest at it's most melodious level if you 
will.      Don't take this lying down do it up big time, send out press 
releases, block the streets with parades and recruiting passersby to dance in the 

Get United Press International out to cover the events, fight back with the 
best weapons you have, your "ax" turn it into a lethal weapon of mass 
destruction,    form a Washboard Brigade if you have to. :))
