Just for fun I compiled a list of the number of times each of the famous
Harpists appeared in our lists (as of Oct 28.) The 1/2 refers to one person
who specifically labled them "second tier."
This information is for enjoyment only and should not be the basis for any
actual wagering, ymmv.

On the group I asked people who some good harpists were and
they listed three that none of our group listed: Little Village (is that a
person or a group?), Buddy Guy and Charlie McCoy.  No one listed Johnny
Puleo in either group...
