You are so right Tillerman. It is supply and demand. I think I am starting to annoy those who read my comments here in the River City Gazette. But I strongly believe if we do not control our borders we, as a nation, will not last. By the way, what kind of guitar do you play? What kind of music? I gigged for years. Now I play for the best audience ever. My grandsons!
