"It's more important to consider the good things they have accomplished."
No Dick, it's importand to consider everything they have done, in Kennedy's case, so we might learn from his 'mistakes', if that's what they were.
As the 'Folktrax' thread shows, we are still trying to sort out the damage he did.
I believe you were personally affected by his 'John Riley' incident, which reflected perfectly his attitude to both traditional singers and fellow collectors.
