    I was about to pack up my losses in plane fare and hotel costs and send the bill to Mr. Freud.

    I hope the musicians got a good deal. This company is so wonderful.
    What a pity to lose so many performances and rehearsal time.

    At the beginning of this, the company was in the black.
    It’s criminal what the board and CEO did.
