Odds and ends

I just had steak, eggs, and potatoes for dinner, which in today's climate may well be considered a self-destructive act, but it was very yummy.

I'm watching Drumline, which features a kid who got a marching band scholarship, and then they find out he can't read music and...

Well, the only thing I'm thinking is... well, why didn't someone tell him that he'd need to read music? He plays, so it shouldn't be that hard for him to learn to follow along at the very least, and the college could help him learn better. I don't know... I just don't see how someone could be allowed to graduate from high school knowing he's going into a college marching band without someone making sure he could read music first?

Oh, well. I don't disbelieve that it could happen. I just don't get it.
