yesterday the looney President Niyazov of Turkmenistan died. The Guardian hacks wrote a shoddy report re funeral type stuff which included the following:
"State television showed musicians sawing on violins and a week of mourning was announced"
I call on all violnists to deluge the GUardian with complaints about their inability to describe the most complex and artistic skill in existence as anytnig other than the butt of caricature and cliche.
(Unless of course professional violins were so overwhelmed by the death of their dear leader that they donned winter garb and actually put some work into preparing firewood.....)
Happy Christmas to everyone except pig-ignorant hacks,
