    And you didn't read my argument very carefully.   Nothing I said applies very well to music very.  Millions of people take days off to "hit the links"...they don't do so just to, say, play the violin with their friends.  Professional musicians also (at least since the advent of sound recordings in the 1910's) can create lasting products - WORK products, if you will - that can be and are traded in the economy at large. They can be craftsmen.

    Arts and sports are very different things.  I think arts are UNDERrepresented in our schools....but I could get behind removing competitive sports from them completely.

    And no,  you will not be able to convince me that Phil Mickleson has worked a single day in the last 15 years.  To say so completely deflates the value of work.
