I wonder whether Ry Cooder minds having his image "borrowed".
I don't see that Grayson is making any such demeaning points in this article. Perhaps you are just sore that he didn't gush about this event being comparable to SXSW. I've enjoyed attending both and they are different while each have their own problems. While I'm a long time Blue Grass fan, and the genre has fans world wide, I recognize it is still a relatively niche market compared to Rock n Roll. I would never expect this event to have the nearly universal draw of something like SXSW.
Where are all the David Caldwell signs? They probably have gone the same place all the Obama/Biden signs went in Orange County. Even in my neighborhood where Obama probably help a slight advantage, we could not keep pro Democrat signs up for more than one night without them disappearing or being destroyed. Meanwhile, our Republican neighbors left their Bush/Cheney signs up during their entire regime without being bothered. I'm not accusing Officer Blackwood of encouraging or condoning the problem. The problem is with the mindset of some types of people who would be more opposed to the election of Caldwell or Obama than supportive of having the Best Man win fair and square. They know who "Their Man" IS because of what he IS NOT!
I've sat in on political discussions with James and can attest to his seriousness about our situation at the local, national, and world levels. He's no baby kissing glad hander who is in it for the money and power. I'm also a life long registered Independent because when I first registered in 1972 I realized that both parties were too much about business as usual. Its only gotten worse. The business of America is BIG business. James is not that kind of lackey.
