dulcimer Self righteous prats (79* d) RE: Self righteous prats 29 Dec 98

It might be kind of interesting to see how many of our best folk songs would be made politically correct by prats. I have a feeling prats miss and may ruin the important part of the experience of hearing folk music. I don't enjoy songs which by design are to offend or cause harm, but doing a folk song in pretty much it's traditional form with original words gives me a lot of insight into the lives and events of others. I don't have like or agree with the perspectives, but I can appreciate the perspectives. So using the definition of 'prat' as found in the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, we might well know where to effectively deal with such a person.
