The inevitable apocalypse occurs on cue. The wall crumbles, bending on its collapsible support columns and bringing a storm of harmless rubble down around the Floyd. "Outside the wall," Waters sings, "the bleeding hearts and the artists make their stand." The Pinkies would presumably find such company untidy, in the first case, or unflattering, in the second. As Waters pipes band and back-up musicians offstage with his clarinet, one recalls with renewed interest the fate of The Godfather's Luca Brasi, who was sent to sleep with the fishes. —Jay Cocks
