I hate to think that people are so amoral that they would endorse a product
of which they did not approve, regardless of the money. They must at least
LIKE the product, and use it at least some of the time (like in live
performance but not recording). Otherwise they are just paid liars, no
better than lawyers. :-) And what would Ornette Coleman or John Cage
endorse anyway -- earplugs?
