Is this about Eric Folkerth? I didn't want to subscribe to Salon to find out.

No, it's Joan Baez, now in Crawford, Texas to support Cindy Sheehan and the rest. And yeah, it's no surprise, but it's nice to see Joan Baez still at it after all these years.

I don't know. There's a solid majority against the war now. If too many folk singers get involved, it could turn into a story about the damn ex-hippies.

I agree that it's very nice indeed to see Joan Baez supporting Camp Casey. I'm a big fan of hers, and I'm sure her visit was a morale booster for those at the camp. I do think the headline could have been slightly more descriptive, at least saying which folk singer it was.
