Think we should keep all posters in mind who refuse to see a mistake.

Just make sure you don't make one!
Actually there are two mistakes in this thread, first is the OP thinking there is only one Jennifer Kim that plays the violin in this country, and the second is that this is somehow the fault of the liberals.

Actually, if one reads Democratic Underground many on the left are saying stupid stuff!

Seems when looking up Jennifer Kim many sites have the wrong one, so I would say the OP isn't alone among many respectable news sites.

She's obsessed with her tool. Most artists are. Not a big deal, don't care about her tweet. She can say whatever she wanted, it is a free country, isn't it?

Here is the lovely Jennifer in performance. Every note is precise, unlike Amtrak going off the rails.

She is a great artist, Amtrak is not so much a great transportation system.
Wow, awesome! I hadn't heard of her before. Going to have to check on iTunes. I'd like to hear her play the Mendelssohn Concerto in E minor, one of my fav's.

Hilary Hahn is another of my favorite violinists.

Hope she got the violin back! Good grief!

That is true, you can always find stupid things being said with the right wing and the left wing.
