Sun Ra and Artie Shaw were the answers (in the form of questions) on 
Jeopardy this week.  None of the contestants even pushed their buttons.  
And as I noted in a blog entry last week, not a single jazz musician was 
shown in the audience at the Kennedy Center Honors telecast last week, 
besides Sonny Rollins and the hired hands on stage that is.

If you think your audience is made up of fellow travelers, think again.
