    I have had some small glimpses, second hand, into the frustrations of Orchestra Librarians. My brother, who was Assistant Principal Cellist in a major symphony orchestra, told me he was continually getting notes from their librarian to the effect, “Please, Mr. Smith, refrain from doodling in the margins of your music. It gives us too many long hours erasing them. Also, we’re running low on copier paper, because we want to preserve the doodles before we erase them!”

    I don’t suppose he is the only orchestral cartoonist alive.
