sad about cliburn.  a truly great pianist . cliburn is to the romantics what 
serkin is to mozart concerti, brendel is to schubert sonatas, and, of course, 
gould is to bach.   and a great human being. playing for every president since 
eisenhower. and causing the hate, during the cold war, to thaw a bit by being 
such a source of good will between russia and america.  sort of need more like 
him, don't we.
