Thread Name: BS: Joan Baez kicked out of Walter Reed
Subject: BS: Joan Baez kicked out of Walter Reed
Orwellian version of story:

Due to insurance reasons and the inability to rewrite performance contracts at such a deliquent date Ms. Baez was unable to perform for the wounded troops at Wlater Reed Hospital in Washington DC.

Common sense version:

Joan Baez was prevented from singing for the troops while other entertainers who were also under contract to the Defense Department were allowed to perform. She was ordered to be silent and not cause any trouble by singing subversive songs.

real version:

WHile she was not kicked out or handcuffed and ,orders were given to get her out of there.
