GUEST,999 Obit: Stompin' Tom Connors Dead (1936-2013) (72* d) RE: Obit: Stompin' Tom Connors Dead (1936-2013) 12 Mar 13


'In the book Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, Romeo Dallaire, the Canadian general who led the UNAMIR peacekeeping force in Rwanda during that country's 1994 genocide reported that he played a recording of Tom's song "The Blue Berets" (about United Nations peacekeeping forces) to keep up his troops' morale while their headquarters was under bombardment.'

I think that says more about Stompin' Tom and his music than could be said by a state funeral. It'll be a petition I don't sign.
