What Did Start the Fire Anyway?

“Liars with nothing to lie about..” a.d.
I check out my newspaper feeds and see the same frightening headlines: ’30 year old murder trial to re-open’ – again, ‘senate should be abolished’, ‘video discovered proving Toronto mayor smokes crack’…..etc. And at the bottom is a story that the local folk festival is honouring Ani DiFranco with its annual artistic achievement award. Now that’s a good story.
She joins other notables such as Loreena McKennitt, Billy Bragg, Sara Harmer, Leon Redbone, Richard Thompson, Odetta, Bruce Cockburn & Buffy Sainte Marie. Quite a collection of proven musical righteousness!
