GUEST,T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Joan Baez on America (21) RE: Joan Baez on America 11 Feb 00

I don't know what Joan means by "making it recognized". It's true that an American can live his entire life without ever hearing "The Road to Lisdoonvarna" or "Broom, the Bonny Bonny Broom", or even "The Days of '49." Americans can go through life oblivious to lots of things that are vitally important to their next-door neighbors. We call this ability to make our own cultural choices (within the reasonable limits of law and civility) "freedom". If Joan wants to turn all of us, willing or not, into a captive audience for one musical genre, I hope and expect she will fail.
