Leonard, Very often you do not let a guest finish answering your question. You interrupt them just as they are getting to the point and ask a completely unrelated question on a different topic. In addition, I find you lacking in logical follow up questions.

My own take on the Woodstock/Altamont thing is this: If you watch the film "Woodstock", you'll see that crowd control was accomplished solely through the use of positive reinforcement, whereas at Altamont, crowd control was attempted through the threat of physical violence. The positive reinforcement was subtle, but it worked. Control through force almost always, eventually, blows up in the would-be controller's face. I don't know what the promoters were thinking of, hiring a criminal gang to "maintain order", as history had already shown it to be unnecessary.

Will Mr. Nash be having any showings of his photography and/or paintings in the NYC area?
How much time is he able to devote to each of his varied talents?
