Whippoorwill a culture of saccharine (24) RE: a culture of saccharine 23 Dec 97

Darn right you can enjoy/play/sing traditional music and vote Republican! And who said just because a song is simple and fun, like Turkey in the Straw, it's a children's song? Most of my "performances," if you can call them that, are for my contemporaries - folks in the 50-70 age group - and their favorites are things like "Froggy Went a'Courting" and "The Old Lady that Swallowed a Fly."
Frank, you're right about kids needing to be taught folklore in history class. It would be nice, and safer for the country in the long run, if they were taught REAL history as well, instead of the watered-down revisionist crap they're being fed nowadays.
