The Education of a Busker

So, what's a busker, you might ask. Well, I don't rightly know. I am sure that I am certainly continuing to discover what a busker is. Perhaps like Peter Pan we could ask "What Makes a Red Man Red?" for even the red man himself can tell you about melenin pigment, and about heredity, but cannot answer the reason and purpose of his redness.

In this sidebone to The Buskers Playhouse I expound that which I know about busking. Listen up, many folks have paid $100 per hour for these nuggets you can read for free, word to your grandmother and by the way it was your grandmother that told me "It's better[, cheaper, less painfull,] to learn from the mistakes of others than to make those mistakes yourself"
