[Dixielandjazz] Jubilee 2006.

Bill & Listmates,

I agree about not forwarding people's personal comments.  This is why I have 
removed names from the e-mails which I am collecting.  I merely identify the 
statement with something such as "a fan from TX" or "a non-playing musician 
from Bakersfield."  Thus when I start answering some of the comments, I 
really won't know by whom some of them were made.

Besides publicly answering what I can, I will be submitting all comments to 
the staff & management of the Jubilee.

As most of you know, this was Jill Harper's first year.  She was flying by 
the seat of her pants most of the time.  I don't know how she pulled it off. 
We could not have done it without her.
