I did say this was a music blog one time and meant it sincerely...

Not so long ago, I reconnected with an overly refined friend of mine, the radical lesbian Catholic theologian activist who has some very interesting things to say in between the proper nouns. In a recent note, she mentioned that she had spent the weekend in Nashville at Vanderbilt Divinity School but hadn't heard a note of "country music, thank God!" before leaving for her annual vacation back to our home town and then on to Germany. Love her dearly, respect her dedication and integrity, but felt that deserved a response...especially since she was cautioning me on twisting the tail of my fans from some of my more political posts...since this is the gal who went to Argentina in 1980 to do pastoral counseling with the families of the disappeared, I thought cautioning me was a bit arch...anyway, the relevant piece of my response.Dublin Blues by Guy Clark
