Hi Tito,
Nicely put.......
Shakespeare's dead too but I still enjoy his stuff, ditto Verdi, Charles
Dickens, Beethoven, Picasso and so on and so on - Their art is unlikely to
be surpassed, evolution or no evolution!!!
I know you will understand my point!

Regards from Snow-bound Toronto and thanks for the tip about the web site.
I will be in NOLA this April for the FQ fest.  Are you going?
