Thread Name: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
Subject: RE: Who Actually Wrote City of New Orleans?
Joe Offer had the idea of study threads, in which considered information could be placed. Unfortunately, many of us (I include myself) posted unconsidered, unchecked, erroneous material and plain chit-chat, which Joe could remove, but one man can do jusr so much.

This thread, for example, needed just one entry from readily available sources, plus informed comment. By chit-chat, I don't mean posts with good content (Open Mike, and Goodman's website information, for example, and directly received information from the author, co-performers, etc.).

I suppose we will continue to have to wade through quantity to find a nugget of quality, to re-phrase Malcolm Douglas.
(Hmmm, Waist Deep in Big Muddy becomes waste deep...?)
