I was going more for "amused contempt," but I'll accept high dudgeon as well. . . .

This is one of many occasions when I doubt the saying that "any publicity is good publicity" -- Spring for Music will always be for me "the people with the silly contest."

I can always take "high dudgeon" and leave "amused contempt" to you.

I'm sure Amanda is a lovely person, but she is getting paid to flack this silly thing, which means she just went way down professionally in my estimation.

If I refrained from working on silly things, I would have starved to death in the streets long ago. I don't see great harm in her press release. We can all draw that line in different places, of course.

Belated thanks! Adding you now; I've been away and neglectful.
