Hed warning: Restraint expected

Dear copy editors: The world is diminished by the exit of Earl Scruggs. Please do your best to avoid making matters worse; don't refer to his craft as pickin'.

Conclusions will be drawn about news outfits' appreciation of American music from their handling of this event. (CNN, FixedNews, I am looking at your front pages now; at least the NYT has gotten Adrienne Rich out there. Washington Post, we can do without "Who is the Rt. 29 Batman.")

Meanwhile, have a shot of the real stuff. OK, have another.
