My father Tom Michener always used to interrupt nature movies by asking out=

loud: "Why did we bring the band?"
It was not until Blazing Saddles came out that I realized how completely
ridiculous a band is even in MOST MOVIES! (alongside the action in another=

"I am strongly induced to believe that as in music, the person who
understands every note, if he also possesses a proper taste, more
thoroughly enjoy the whole, so he who examines each part of a fine view,
may also thoroughly comprehend the full and combined effect.  Hence, a
traveler should be a botanist, for in all views plants form the chief
embellishment."  Charles Darwin, The Voyage of the Beagle
