Preachin' to the choir, my beloved friend! 8-) Yes, you can see elements of pantheism and relativism in this year's show. Great conclusion!


Couldn't agree more. If it would be that easy to be happy, there would be a lot more happy people in the world.

I get the idea the Cadets seem to be expressing, that happiness doesn't come from pursuing the things of this world. But there's a reason why the poet said, "Tis a GIFT to be simple." If the Cadets had 30-60 seconds of performance time available to them, I'd love it if they could work that tune into their show.

You and me both, and it would work perfectly.
