No conspiracies here. Thread will bomb for sure! But, is there a conspiracy? How could choral arrangements have been so good in the 60s, and have gotten so lax today?

Thanks for sharing. I don't think ATS has to be doom all the time... I for one like this site because it has all kinds of stuff NOT being shouted about by the main stream media, including posts like this.
