First, a big, hearty PFTHFHTHTHFHTHTTTT!!!!!! to the person who asked "But does this article belong here?"
If nothing else, this goes to show that the arts and learning are not just the provinces of the liberal! I sing in a wonderful symphony orchestra and those who know not much more than this about me are constantly confounded that one can be so much a proponent of the arts and yet be so conservative minded. We need more conservative artists to come out of the closet.
