This is allegedly a true story though I can't vouch for it.

In the 1920's an old Countess complained to Sibelius 'Don't you think Proffesor that modern youth is corrupt? they talk of nothing but jazz, first they dance and then....I have been chaste for close to 90 years and who thanks me for it?' 'Well I don't, thats for sure' answered Sibelius. Wink

I think it just might be true.--kp
