WyoWoman (musical) Prostitution (54* d) RE: BS: Prostitution 03 Feb 02

clinton, I really like your approach. It mostly makes me sad that people don't know anything except a handful of songs they heard on the radio. But then, maybe their knowledge of other stuff is deep and they'd think it was sad that I didn't know their stuff. If we can gently educate without snapping someone's scrawny neck like a twig or ending up being carted off to the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed, we've done a good deed.

But then, I gave up the idea of singing professionally years ago when it became apparent that much of it would involve trying to be heard over the people yelling -- YELLING! WHY DO THEY HAVE TO YELL????? -- in a smoky bar and being hit on by guys who had enough alcohol in them to think they were very smoove, but also enough enough to render their brains completely short-circuited. Yick.

So maybe I can be sanguine about educating the ignorant because I haven't been dealing with them directly for years and years. Good thing -- I might have ended up in prison for clocking some idiot with my mic stand.
