An Aphorism from BOSS

I have not made up my mind whether I shall be watching Boss on the Starz channel regularly.  However, the latest episode had a line that definitely caught my attention:

Music critics answer to God and Mozart.

For those who do not know about this program, it is set in contemporary Chicago and is shaping up to be a changing-of-the-guard narrative about the passing from boss-based politics to the world of the Internet-driven social networks.  Personally, I cannot imagine any story about Chicago that lacks any reference, however much in passing, to the Chicago Symphony;  so I enjoyed an exchange about the ensemble providing the pretext for the above quote (even if I am not sure I subscribe to its assertion)!
