    Not only at Abbott — LS

    I suspect there are a number of reasons for this. One being EEOC standards. In fact, if you are non-white femaile, your chances are higher of being hired. However, I am not sure if this applies to the concert orchestra or just to business in general.

    As for musicians, (being one myself) I do think women are probably better at it. I say this because when you listen to really GOOD music, you can hear the emotion put into the piece - and I think women are far better at displaying emotions than men are. I would think this would ebb into the musical arena as well. This is NOT to say that male musicians are inferior - just probably more technical as opposed to the emotion they put into thier performance.

    As for me.. I just got back from 5 days in the mountains only to find out that my EKG showed some sort of irregularity during my Cardiac Clearance Exam for this surgery. So.. today I had a Echocardiogram and tomorrow is an a Cardiac Stress Test and blood work for a Metobalic Panel. Hopefully all of this will get back to the Heart Doc and all will be fine and I'll be cleared for Wednesday's surgery.
