Looks like I hit the wrong button, and for some reason I was listed as GUEST. I am not the GUEST we speak of ---my last line had to do with Long Island State troopers. So, onward.
What I had wanted to address was GUEST's comments about being a "left" radical.
We, fortunately, in this country, have moved into a gray area which is being adjudicated in legislation and in courtrooms rather than the streets. Perhaps that came about with the help of a lot of the "left" folkies and perhaps we are just more civilized. Whatever---but those who seek the anonymity of the Internet as GUEST and spout their radical beliefs are certainly not the ones to be emulated or respected.
FA is a business. No doubt. Yet, perhaps, a business that can help and promote exactly the type of causes and beliefs many of us hold. And if there are singers on the "right" and on the "left"==well, FA is there as is any other business group. From the AMA , NAB, etc; Pick an abbreviation.
As to the morality of what they do---that is for you all to decide in your own hearts and minds---though I think the heart only pumps blood.
As to GUEST--if it be only one person--which I doubt--you can certainly carry a huge flag and wave it in protest as people with real names go about doing what they do that is appropriate to their conscience.
My name is not GUEST It is Bill Hahn
