A line from Yo Yo Ma by Mark Young

The range of bad behavior
shocked her; but a high-
handed surgeon used a chisel
to dismiss her complaints whilst

upholding those made against
her by a hierarchy of elitist men.
Perhaps only the transmission
of music will eliminate incom-

petent leaders. So, walk a fine
line. Workplace bullying in-
volves new typologies for
risk management since 38% of

the crab cakes sold as locally
sourced blue crab instead
contain imported meat.
Let the music do the work.
