'What makes me ashamed is the attitude of folkies to the homeless of Camden.
'a large and none too clean woman squatting to pee in the gutter'
Would a small clean person have been more acceptable? Obvously Camden should be cleaned up to make it a place fit fot folkies to sing of ummm beggars say?
Anonymous guest's post above is probably trying to make a valid point. The proper response to misery or deprivation is to try to do something to alleviate it and introduce more social justice in the world. But I fear he has missed the point on this one. A person who urinates in the street while shouting obscenities at passers-by (unless mentally ill) is behaving badly. It insults the homeless and the underprivileged to make the assumption that those misfortunes equal bad behaviour of this kind. Brutishness can and does occur in every level of society and may take many forms. It should shock and inspire disgust wherever it is encountered.
