Maybe that was Mark Twain. It’s not important, though. The bigger picture those words were intended to paint faces all of us in 3-D glory and THX Surround Sound. It’s called life.
Lance Burton left the Monte Carlo and our take on the scenario features the Monte Carlo people being jerks to Inside Magic Favorite Lance Burton.
Lance is too good a guy to be a jerk back to them or to even make a public statement other than one he made; thanking the hotel for wonderful years performing in The Lance Burton Theatre.
Journey into our mind warp for one second. Let us assume for the sake of argument that Monte Carlo Muckety-Mucks were trying to force Lance out despite having just signed him to an extension on his contract.
Let us also assume, arguendo, they wanted to force Lance Burton from The Lance Burton Theatre to bring in new acts that might not cost as much. Perhaps they could even four-wall The Lance Burton Theatre and charge acts for the privilege of performing on the hallowed stage.
