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.

I always at least glance at street musicians and I always try to give some cash to the ones I listen to for more than one bar, and I know classical music and I have seen photographs of Joshua Bell

Giving you probably two more points toward satisfying the test than most people--one for the giving of cash, one for the knowing who the guy is. (Maybe three, for the glancing, but...well, that's complicated.)

Both of which are, of course, aspects of your being a good person; but the lack of those in a person is not evidence against them at all.
