Some time ago, I found a document for sale on eBay that was presented as being signed by Art Tatum.  I wrote a brief post about it, which sparked a heated comment-controversy between the seller and a relative of Art’s.  Today, in the spirit of fairness, I allowed the most recent and perhaps most vehement comments (you could look them up, if you care to) to be posted, but decided to shut the metaphorical door.  Enough!  Genug!  Basta!

I’d rather watch and hear Mr. Tatum play the piano . . . which, after all, is what we will remember him for.  There’s quite enough acrimony in the world for me already.
