Welcome to the Political Arena, Mr. Trump...

...the Very Venue Name (The 'Q') Portends the Problems You Will Face

"It is not the critic who counts;
Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
Or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.
"
-Theodore Reoosevelt

A Dancing Fiddler prancing around in a distinctly pagan atmosphere.

How droll –– NOT!

I just had a vision of the late Jascha Heifetz giving a concert at Carnegie Hall decked out in buckskins and a Davey-Crockett-style coonskin cap, –– or a pink doublet, purple hose, and a green, Robin-Hood-style chapeau topped with an egret feather.

It took me quite a while to stop giggling enough to allow me to continue typing.

I would agree with TR, as I often have on many occasions, except for one thing: Those placed in the arena most often arrived there not by choice, but by the dictates of fearful master tacticians, or the whims of sadistic tyrants. Hence they should be classified as VICTIMS not "heroes."

I would want to give them credit only if they were able to escape and return to utterly vanquish the bastards who tried to make sport of them.

Sic temper tyrannies is still the greatest motto of them all, I think. Sure beats e pluribus unum.

Violin and dance might seem incongruous talents in a single individual, but Sterling does manage to, at times. pull it off.

And in this particular video, it would seem the schemers to have been none other than the victims themselves (as audience and performers)...

:P

Bury one, then double the other? I suspect that you still would have displeased the Master.
