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.
