Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) OBITS and manners (38) RE: OBITS and manners 31 Aug 01


There were 8 posts, including a link to a news article concerning her death and half of those would probably not even made it had the thread not been turned into a pissing contest right out of the gate and thus kept at the top of the forum. That was hardly more attention than was paid to the passing of John Hartford, both in the original Rip thread and the subsequent upsurge in lyric requests et.al.
When Doc Watson goes to his reward (God forbid it happens too soon), I doubt any thread not mentioning him in the title will stay up for more than a day.
A brief mention of a singer seemed insignificant by one folkier-than-thou individual is hardly a threat to the focus of this forum
