Saturday Morning Cartoon: Carnegie Hall's Brilliant Bug

Saturday, October 05, 2013

This week saw a two-day strike by the stagehands at Carnegie Hall, the first such strike in the venue's history.

A much different set of complications are portrayed in today's cartoon: it shows the fortitude of one brilliant bug who makes his debut on Carnegie's historic stage. He plays the opening movement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita in D Minor for Solo Violin, BWV 1004.

I was so happy for the little bug... Wish it had a different ending :-(

This is just too too sad and bespeaks a juvenile sense of humor. There could have been many ways to end this story besides the abrupt and cynical choice that was made. Not a good use of art.

Instead of listener contribution, WQXR should be fined for their "Saturday Morning Cartoon" this morning. Hey Bugs Bunny,your needed down here!
