     During WWII, the opening was adapted into a medley of patriotic songs because . . .  _  is Morse code for V, and V was the logo for Victory. Many years later, my high school band still had the piece in the book. It was always fun to watch the contortions the band leader went through to get us to start on the upbeat.

      I told a whiny kid this week to PRACTICE her scales - she wanted shortcuts.  Little snot sent all kinds of nasty replies back. She could have played all 15 in the time she took  to write.
