"But I do worry that our musical heritage is being allowed to dwindle and wither by those supposedly dedicated to its propagation."

Without care, a body can die from an infected, untreated hangnail.
Mudcat is a teeny little thing in the Big Picture. If our garden is full of poison, I suspect the surrounding area feels the effect.

Kitty, I apologize for stepping on your toes by standing in your living room encouraging the conversation to move past your chosen topic. I read the thread and had nothing to add until the conversation turned in a direction where my input seemed appropriate. Maybe it's a direction we're all more comfortable leaving unsaid?

Ruth, the 'scene' may be vivid and lively around you, but not everybody has access and/or knowledge of a slice of Scene near them. For those of us who fit that category, mudcat IS a representative view into what's going on within Folk.

Sue, if your "because I did" statement wasn't meant to be snippish, I am sorry I snapped off a reply in rebuttal.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread where we learn whether the outraged listeners will continue tuning in and listening to the objectionable fellow to insure that they don't miss his next ridiculous comment.
