In a posting to this thread on April 25, you refer to Tom Paxton as a "war vet." Tom is an army vet, not a war vet. His time in the service came after Korea and before Vietnam. Most of his army time was served at a post in New Jersey and that allowed him to spend a lot of his weekends hanging out in Greenwich Village.
Dave (the Ancient Mariner),
I get a sense from your posts that you are suggesting that soldiers cannot be murderers. I'm sorry, but when unarmed civilians are lined up and killed, that is murder.
