The Momentous Ribbon Cutting
With avid photographers arranged in a respectful semi-circle, despite one or two over-eager telephotos lens-toters who were unable to keep it in their pants, the ceremony began. What should have been over almost as soon as it began took a frightful turn toward the final frontier when the ribbon refused to part. Imagine how frustrated those telephoto lenses were, and how flummoxed were subjectivist observers who assumed that it was possible to cut a simple ribbon without double blind verification.
Bottom Line: the show must go on. Thankfully, audio editors are a tenacious lot.
