I have a very mild hearing deficiency in one ear, so it's good to carry some plugs (which I will). But I'm not dwelling on that risk. Today, I'm just looking forward to seeing/hearing some of my old favorites and expecting a great time. I saw Baez about five years ago and she was both in good voice and very funny. She brought out a great deal of reading material about the foibles/horrors of George W, which she milked for all their comic worth. One older couple walked out. This is Texas, and I remember wondering, "Are they tired, bored, or could they possibly have been unaware that Joan Baez would be political?" The entire balance of the audience appeared with her 100%.
