The scissors mode, a magnetic dipole excitation-mainly orbital, is usually discussed in terms of a transition from a J=0+ ground state to a J=1+ excited state. This is understandable because it follows from the way the experiment is performed, e.g., inelastic electron scattering. Here, however, we start with the excited 1+ state and consider all possible transitions to J=0+,1+, and 2+ states with final isospins. There is a larger transition to the 02+ state than to ground. This has a much richer structure. We note that the "sum of sums" is independent of the interaction.
