A True Fable:
One night's Chol Hamoed entertainment at two hotels.
Both tour operators paid for concerts by "name" performers and both charged guests through the nose for their Pesach packages.
One got a tight well-rehearsed show with a tight hip backup band.
The other got a second-rate backup band, most of whom couldn't read sheet music and didn't know the songs the performers were singing.
All musicians for both bands were paid about the same.
Is there a moral?
