Subject: RE: Gov. George Bush (Texas) & LEADBELLY??????
Come on folks. Do you think Al Gore knows who Leadbelly is/was? Wasn't he the first guy to use a "Willie Horton ad" against his opponent? Let's face it. There are no "folkies" running for President.

It will matter very little who wins this election - at least to me. Life will go on. Remember the Pete Seeger folk song, "How do I know my youth is all spent?" I love the line (names interchangeable) that says, "first Bush, now Clinton, I surely am vexed; but I'll still stick around to see what happens next." Here's the scenario: Bush wins and we change the words to "first Clinton, now Bush; then Hillary wins and we change them back. Peace to all! Jim
