Larry David once famously asked...

..."Couldn't anybody play the bongos?" I thought of that this morning when I read the obituary of a tap-dancer named Ernest Brown, or Brownie, as he was called. (Tap-dancers seem to have their own unique brand of names: Regio the Hoofer, Bill Bojangles Robinson, Charles Cookie Cook, and Howard Sandman Slims, to name a few.) It always looks to me like tap-dancers are just randomly moving their feet really fast and smiling a lot. Couldn't anybody do that?
