How to measure loyalty, commitment, devotion?

In the case of David Jensen, of Sunset Alliance Records and guiding light behind Before Braille, Art for Starters, and now Loyal Wife, his dedication to music can be physically measured in the form of actual compact disc inventory, shrink-wrapped and stacked up, in the attractive shed behind his Mesa home. Standing watch over all this product is a cutout of Eminem’s head peering ominously from the window.
