When the members started to complained, he told them in no uncertain terms to shut and play. He needed the royalty money. There was no disappointment when he decided to leave at the end of his contract. On the rare occasions that he returns as Emeritus Conductor along with other guest conductors that we have had, he gets just a smattering of applause. Others have received a standing ovation. Now Keith Lockart can do no wrong. Except he got married and broke the hearts of a lot of Boston Women. And he is so cute!

You have to give him his due. He has written some great music. But you can always tell what he wrote.

I listened to Carol King and James Taylor all weekend.

But part of my mind, right now is ...

When you're alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go!
