leeneia ADD: Ballad of Penny Evans +sequel (Steve Goodman) (7) RE: ADD: Ballad of Penny Evans +sequel (Steve Goodman) 13 Oct 21


I don't want to sing it or rewrite it. I just wanted to point out how often in controversies, the weakest party gets it in the neck. For example, in Kansas City the school board and the teachers just couldn't seem to work out a fair integration program, so a federal judge ordered that for ten years, students had to be bussed to distant neighborhoods. Young kids were standing in the streets at six in the morning, no matter how cold it was, to get a bus to please this judge.

And the Covid crisis - medical people, students and teachers are getting it in the neck because rednecks hate the government. School board members are getting death threats. Are these the defenseless parties? You bet.

Those checks are probably sitting in a fund somewhere to this day, waiting for Billy's heirs to claim them.
