Thread Name: OBIT: RIP Dave Van Ronk (1936-2002)
Subject: RE: OBIT: RIP Dave Van Ronk
On Monday, 2/11 the New York Times ran his obituarty by Reuters. Today, Tuesday,2/12 Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote another obituary. Mr. Pareles presented so much more of the personality of Dave Van Ronk with a glimpse of his role in the folk revival of the 1950's and 1060's through his more current work. Rueters sighted Mr. Dylan eight times in it's obituary and Mr. Pareles only once. I'll save today's as a keepsake.

I don't do html or I would have provided a link.
