(was) Joan Baez as promised above

Oops, technical difficulties destroyed this one --I have replaced it right above-- but I'm keeping the post here because in the two minutes it was up, one very speedily-writing commenter wrote in. (YouTube won't let me move the video from one post to another.)

Her voice is still lovely. I remember during the Vietnam War the night she was on the Smothers' brothers show singing anti-war songs. That was their final show. They got thrown off the air.

And now here we are again.

Hi Kirstin.

Jane, I was wondering where my comment went. Here it is!

Yup, YouTube problems. Too long to explain! (Must get back to writing. Also some family health things came up. All okay now.)

I believe I was still in Vietnamese language school; it was a "must see" every Sunday night in the dayroom, if you were sober enough. Early '68, Otis And the Mar-Keys (Booker T & the MGs) doing "Dock of the Bay". Poignant time. I'm sorry I did it: went in the army. Coulda done the time.

Vietnamese language school, geez. You musta been Army Intelligence :-). (No jokes now!)

No blaming -- people did what they did and now we deal with what is in front of us --which is looking worse and worse.

"No blaming?" I can't say that; I blame lots of people, alive and dead, including myself (putting definitions aside for the moment).

Yes, I enlisted to obtain a MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) of "Intelligence Analyst" (I'm very good at it, more's the pity; so was Jeremiah). I did this to avoid the Infantry, but, as you point out, second-guessing is useless. The Vietnamese was the Army's second-level idea, dammit.
