Subject: RE: BS: What isn't Folk?
That old "hoss singing" line keeps returning ad infinitum. And this kind of thread keeps on keeping on too. We all think that we're the first to say it.

The problem is that we're all not born with a knowledge of what came before.
We have to re-invent the wheel every time another person/ego/horse/whatever picks up a guitar and decides to make "our music" in their own image. At that point their ego gets involved. Someone says, "You guys don't have a clue." They respond, "You never did have a clue."

If it does not come to blows, we'll be lucky.

If we were all empaths it'd be much easier to live in this world me thinks.
