The Master

Here we have a wonderful article about my old pal, Jeff Place, and how central he's been to the archiving, preservation and promotion of folk music and related arts.  I had the pleasure of working with Jeff in my first record store job, and he was my main teacher.  A wonderful person; and I can't think of anyone better suited for his job with the Smithsonian.

Wuss America
The continuing commissar/nanny state approach.  If those kids were Black, nothing would happen. No one would be called, etc.   It is the continuing pampering and over-protecting of white middle class kids.
