    Having lived through both periods of history, I recall very few incidents like you describe from 2004-08 and would hardly use the term OFTEN.

    Nah, you need *live* entertainment :P

    I loved watching the conductor go nuts while the 1812 Overture was playing :P

    I think it's bad to vote straight party on anything. Also, you can remove your undisclosed lean now.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Waving my arms around wildly with my hair flying in my face isn't exactly my idea of sexy-happy-fun-time. But I guess there's a reason they become conductors, eh?
