"Music causes us to think eloquently"--Emerson

This interview with Leila Cobo of Billboard Magazine on All Things Considered yesterday really makes me want to watch the Latin Grammy's on Wednesday night (CBS). What the show doesn't mention is the fact that the venue was shifted to Los Angeles from Miami only three weeks ago over fears of violence against Cuban performers.

Question: What is the largest market for Spanish-language music?

Answer: The U.S.

Reason: In big-market countries like Brazil and Mexico, most of the music is pirated.
