Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

what was this about Lor? and why were the police taking your sound system? you weren't doing something unpatriotic and unchristian like suggesting human rights are good and war is bad were you? dear dear...

Are you sure you weren't giving them a rendition of Fight the Power by Public Enemy, going by the responce?

Please do tell the story. Was the deal that the sound system wasn't properly permitted etc.? Or was there a political reason for the bums' rush?

I suppose there was a political reason that the sound permit was not given for the speach, in what is New York's trafalgar Sq. where political speach happens every day... go figure?
