From the Curmudgeon File...

It seems symbolic of country music's sellout during the '90s when the Big Money came in, that the long traditional "Fan Fair", the name accurate (many artists found Fan Fair more fatiguing than their tours) has been renamed the CMA Festival. Yes very symbolic. CMA stands for "Country Music Association" and membership is limited to individuals working within the Country Music industry. So now the festival celebrates the industry rather than the fans.

Regarding Amazon Kindle:

PRO: You're able to carry many books in one slim unit.

CON: You have to carry it inside a large heavy protective device, preferably a padded safe.
