I instinctively disliked Ives' sweet sanitised versions of good songs and deplored the obvious avoidance of anything socially or politically controversial in his repertoire. If he was a HUAC stool pigeon in 1952 any rationalisation doesn't matter, only the lasting harm to his colleagues. But if all embracing Pete decided to overlook the deed in 1993, well that counts for much in my book.
