    I wonder if any of you have read THE SOLOIST by LA Times columnist Steve Lopez - It's about Nathiel Ayers - who studied bass in Cleveland with Harry Barnoff and with Homer Mensch at Juillard, then seemed to have a schizophrenic breakdown while at Julliard and wound up living on the streets of LA.

    Lopez did several columns on him in the Times, and the book is soon to be a major motion picture, as they say.

    A real example of "there but for the grace of God..." I say.
