Rick, I for one will be most sorry if you do in fact leave. Better, I think the stay and continue to enlighten us with your knowledge and reflections on the Trio past and present. To retreat under fire is a miserable way to go. I support the concept of free speech and defend the right of others to have their say no matter how ill founded their opinions might be. I think we should all move on and away from this subject. Like others here I would not attend a show by the present trio if it was free but some would and they are welcome to it. Me, I wish Rick, George and Bill would put on some shows of their own .... because no matter what they may be called their music is still great and to hear them I would definitely pay. As another Bill has said... A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
