In the stylings of the late Norm Nathan, I can't believe how dumb my
question was there.  Here we have a big deal fireworks valued at over
a million bucks.  Wait, there's more: The Boston POPS sportin' a big
ass 1812 on the audio channel and I sit there and ask what FMer's
gonna CD along for the ride.  I really need another puppy.  Just carry
on as if I'm part of the wait staff.
