Thanks for the information, folks. I have been following these discussions with great interest, although not actively participating.
We are living in what could be a critical period of history; the actions of all paries over the term of the next years could determine everything to follow. After the last vacuous decades (at least in the states), we again live in interesting and important times. Contrary to the opinion of some short-sighted guests and members, I can't imagine a more relevant subject within a forum dedicated to the people's music.
