Thread Name: Art Thieme & Utah Phillips: Honor 'Em!
Subject: RE: Art Thieme & Utah Phillips: Honor 'Em!
U. Utah has been a social mentor and a huge source of purloined jokes for me for over 30 years. And the biggest honor I ever had was when he started using my jokes just like they were his own too. What goes around, comes around, I suppose. We are both doomed and destined,I fear, to have our jokes outlive our politics. If our songs go into tradition, I do suspect that Mr. Phillips would be as happy as I would be given that exceptional eventuality.
