      Amen sister! Bob was busy doing court business stuff and didn't get to hear
      them perform, and I am a rank amateur, but what they did didn't sound
      anything like the organum *I*'ve ever heard.

      They were Ren Faire performers and the King and Queen aren't learned enough
      to know that.

      Amen again! Personally, I think Ismenia was downright robbed... [for all
      those who aren't in the East, Lady Ismenia Wysten is a wonderful storyteller
      who was the only finalist in the Bardic Championships who didn't win]

      You better! And as soon as I find out from Bob what that means, I'll be
      sure to ride you about it... =)
