Why I Love the Forum (2009 Edition)

We were mid-discussion during Saturday's "When Does Music Become Secular?" panel. The audience was discussing the point that music was sticky--a single listen sticks in your heard, while other art forms require more time.

Mid-argument, to prove music's superiority, John T. asked skeptically, "How many people go to art museums?"

Slowly, one hand raised, then another, then another. Within seconds about 85% of the room had their hands raised. Then the people who don't attend art museums started raising their hands to fit in. Everyone roared.

John stopped talking.
