Busy-ness vs. Beauty

Here's an interesting article I found through my 'net trawls, about what happens with one of the world's more prestigious violin virtuosos (virtuosi?) plays incognito, in the middle of the city.

On the one hand I can somewhat understand the viewpoint that people are busy, they're not in their best frame of mind for listening and appreciating beauty and all that but... it's still really damn sad.

Both of you have a point, but I still can't wrap my head around the idea that even if they don't want to (or can't afford to) stop and listen, even if they don't want to break their stride for five seconds, at the very least I'd think that some people would take notice, maybe give a nod of appreciation, even if they can't stop to give money or listen to more than what they can hear while walking.
