Just to confirm...

...that we're all philistines, a thousand or so of us completely ignored one of the most accomplished classical violinists of our day as he played in the Metro station in Washington, DC.
Choose your moral from the below:
* people are in too big a hurry
* context is everything
* the emperor has no clothes
* I-pods are of the devil

Thx to Tim.

Add to the list the theory that most people can't hear the difference between a regula old street musician (many of whom are very good, by the way) and a virtuoso.
