Remember the 1962 movie "To Kill A Mockingbird"? As lawyer Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck) explains to his young daughter, Scout, it is a sin to harm a mockingbird because all they do is sing!
They don't hurt anyone or attack crops or kill other creatures. All they do is sing their hearts out.
To kill a mockingbird is to kill inocence.

No doubt closely attuned to the Greenwich Village rumor mill (and the KT Inaugural gig story), the NLCR became the first band in history, (that we know of), to work the Kingston Trio into traditional favorite "The Arkansas Traveller"..... https://frobbi.org/audio/ivor/3DVDs_1/NLCR-1961-UChicago/11%20-%20Arkansas%20Traveler.mp3
The Kingston Trio sure was smart to keep their politics to themselves. I wish the entertainers of today would do the same. Music, movies and sports used to be something we could all agree upon. Peace out.
The Other Brothers venture into the perilous world of politics with “Hangman”. Based on a centuries-old folk song, it is a ballad sung by Mike Pence as the Proud Boys prepare to string him up. For Trump supporters who may be offended, I got to know Donald well in Atlantic City, and I voted for him, but he lost me on January 6th: http://www.Tinyurl.com/hangman2021
