Frank Howe ASK MUDDY!Brain Surgery/Folk Music (15) RE: ASK MUDDY!Brain Surgery/Folk Music 20 Jul 99

Dear Concerned in Canada, You have every right to be "concerned" as you have been led astray ever so slightly. Folk music is indeed much like brain surgery in that it's appropriate application dierectly impacts on positive cognitive and affective functioning. It differs, however, from brain surgery in these critical ways: You will never make any real money. You will not, in fact, be allowed anywhere near a hospital unless you are horizontal. You will never receive a check from a third party payer. You will not get to use any really cool high tech equipment ...and finally and perhaps most importantly... You will never accidently sneeze while working and cause someone to have a permanent facial tic. There may be some other minor differences but these are the ones most noted by others who have made similar career path mistakes. Best wishes M.A.
