Patricia Mitchell wonders what makes someone search for "oboe free", and if it means the same as ___ free in the office vernacular of the day. I'd love to work in an office so lush with oboes and those playing them in cubes, that a few anti-cultural types were demanding oboe-free zones. Which brings up the point, why aren't modern office cubicles set to allow for musical instruments? There's barely room in mine for a trombone stand. Why should I be denied the ability to reply in sound to those who whistle tunelessly all day long, much to my sorrow?
