   Yeah, I can see your point...  Sorta like (to run with one of 
Kevin's analogies) going to a Clapton concert and playing Jimmy
Buffett tapes on a boombox...  But Pennsic is so big, and so busy,
and so full of distractions that if I noticed them at all I'd likely 
just ignore them and go on to the next merchant's booth...

  no doubt more _tolerant_ than is strictly healthy... ;)
