Thread Name: Bad days in Seattle folk scene
Subject: RE: Bad days in Seattle folk scene
that's horrible. i didn't even see the news, summer is here and early and i've been away from the tv. i used to love the seasttle folk scene. back then it was the last exit and another coffe house i've forgotten the name of, in north seattle, and a folk instrument store that had great stuff. and of course i played northwest folk life for seven years.

when i did sca stuff out there i was amazed that the americans were pissed off that they couldn't bring their guns across the border.it seems hard to believe that anyone needs to carry a hand gun, or any gun for any reason other than hunting. in was a copetitive shooter for the north nova scotia highlanders militia when i was a teen, i was in their top five target shooters, and didn't own or need a gun.(they provided the target rifles).

however many americans are gun happy.

it's so quiet here in new brunswick and nova scotia, i may be bored occasionally but i prefer being bored to worrying about who is carrying a gun
