Iconoclast: Can’t. I already have six a week. Can’t do eighteen a week like you.
Iconoclast: Can’t do textbooks. Have to do something edgy and new each week. Something I’ve never taught before.
Iconoclast: Stimulating. I get input from preparing, and I get output from teaching what I just learned. You teach a lot, make a lot of money. Yes, but where’s your input time?
Pedagogist: A day a week. I relax, I read.
Iconoclast: So my reading does double duty. I read it, I teach it. Improvized Jazz vs Play it Again Sam. Louis vs. Sam.
Comparing Sam to Louis Armstrong is a little misleading, yes. The misquote notwithstanding, did Sam really play the same songs every night the same way? And did Louis always play freestyle? The pedagogist has a point; there is something to be said for having a script to depart from.
