Hi Graham,

Not true -- like it or not, there are forces beyond "general population taste" 
which apply to the Sieve of Time.

You and I have very different philosophies on persistence.

I have a definition which includes non-subjective criteria. But purely 
objective? Of course not -- I can't imagine there could ever be such a thing.

> accept that Elvis[1] produced "better" music than John Cage.

Elvis's "best music" *is* better than Cage's "best music" -- what's your point?
