Thread Name: Baez interview. Americans and enemies
Subject: RE: Baez interview. Americans and enemies
comic strip character Pogo said, "We have discovered the enemy and HE ARE US" - Joan operates from a position of disdain for her American culture. believe it has clouded her view ... not that there are not plenty of issues to be resolved, but as an Ameican these are American issues to fix and are not fixed by the "I'm OK but you're an idiot" point-of-view. When the life boat we're in is leaking, I can stand there pointing out the problems and predicting doom and failure - or I can roll up my sleeves, begin bailing and muster the assistance of my fellow lifeboat travellers.

Joan is blessed with remarkable voice.
