I was wondering if anyone else would pick up on that. I agree that  
more than a few OKOM fans and some OKOM musicians are further to the  
right than the birthers and death panel believers. Then again, at  
least 10% of the people in the USA believe that the sun revolves  
around the earth.

Sadly enough, quite a few people out there don't consider OKOM as  
jazz, but rather a re-creation of old time music.
