Interesting Story About Beauty & Culture

A story caught my eye in the Washington Post last week, and I wanted to pass it on to you for your thoughts. One of the writers for the Post thought up an experiment, executed it, and then wrote an article in response to what he found. Basically, he got one the best violinists in the world to play one of the most expensive violins in the world in a busy public place during rush hour. The premise was wondering if people who are busy with intense schedules would recognize the beauty right in front of them or run by without even noticing. You can read what happened in this very well-written article on the web. There is even some video of the guy playing. Amazing - what are your thoughts after checking it out?
