Just a note to make public what seems to have been implicit until now: I have no wish to moderate political discussion here in the DB forums. I know there isn't a hard and fast "rule" about it, but life is too short to spend precious time trying to moderate discussions about topics which are so deeply ingrained, personal, and non-music related, and I politely decline. Since I feel fairly certain that Jon Packard feels the same way, I would like to invite all members who feel the need to discuss political issues here at TB to do so in the forum that was created for this purpose. It's called "Tin Pan Alley", and you can find it Here. Thank you.
