    Somehow I never worried about the politics of Seeger, et al. He/they spoke out against injustice. Fine by me. I might disagree about the how-tos of resolving the problem, but damned if I'd not acknowledge that a problem existed.

    skunk, I grew up on old-time folk and country music. Mother Maybelle, Roy Acuff, Hank Sr., Woodie, Jimmy Rogers and on and on. Then Josh White, Baez and Dylan. I was in the middle of the Austin music scene from '63-'83 as audience, club-buillder, and folk-club owner. Helped kids like Jerry Jeff and Mike Murphey grow up. :) Got to know Peter Yarrow at the Kerrville Folk Festival. Josh White, Jr., played there; good kid.

    Injustice never ends: "Oh, the banks are made of marble..." Remember? Now it's Jamie Dimon and JP Morgue, those of the White House in-group.

    I'm with you from Baez/Dylan onwards, I think...

    Odds are that I started a wee tad earlier than you did. :D I'll hit the big 8-0 in July.

    I know. You've got a little less than 20 years on me! :)

    Still driving that backhoe?

    Still have it; not using it as much. I have a little work on a "startover" residence; I sold the Terlingua house and 300 acres but kept 50 on the side of Terlingua Creek where I don't have to cross in flood stage. I'm getting a tad old to cross with water over the headlights. :D
