Chris Stuart Gets Deeply Thoughtful   Leave a comment


I don’t habitually post links to other writers’ deep thoughts- heck, it is hard enough to attract readers without sending them elsewhere- but Chris Stuart, noted bluegrass songwriter, musician, and humourist, has recently posted a piece examining freedom of speech from a bluegrassic perspective. It is worth considering, I think, even if he doesn’t send me his CDs for review any more: http://bluegrasstoday.com/blue-yodel-47-freedom-of-speech/ I’m not sure why this resonated with me so much. Perhaps because I’m tired of certain people telling me that what I think is somehow wrong or anti-whatever simply because I don’t happen to agree with their (from my perspective) narrow and wrong-headed moronity. Not very tolerant, that last thought. Regardless, Chris goes deep on this one. Ties in “Rollin’ In My Sweet Baby’s Arms” while he’s at it, although I’ve always found “I Am My Own Grandpa” much more offensive.

Thanks for visiting Fervor Coulee. Donald
