Thread Name: A Letter From Utah Phillips
Subject: RE: A Letter From Utah Phillips
You started this fight longer ago than 12 years, Bruce. It goes back decades. And here you still are. And here you will still be in a few weeks. Some folks are important symbols of right, justice and equality, and you are one of those folks. You've always been a man of greqt integrity, good humour and a fighter for justice who just didn't know how to back down. That still shows clearly in the letter that Mark posted. Yours in solidarity? Damned right. And yours in solidarity back atcha.
PS I expect to hear you sing "The Goodnight-Loving Trail" a few more times and attend concerts or festivals where I can try to steal your timing on that "Next time, Orville, you'd better ask for a loaf of bread" story you told at an Edmonton Folk Festival years back.
What is it Mark always closes his correspondence with? Yeah, 'Take it easy, but TAKE it.' You too do that. Later.
