Puffing at Peter, Paul and Mary

November 21, 1987

It's a sad commentary that Howard Rosenberg, despite his facility with the English language, lacks the compassion to have been "touched" by "Heartstrings." The trio's person-to-person approach to the heartbreaking tragedy of the people of El Salvador and Nicaragua was immeasurably more meaningful than a two-sided erudite presentation.

The tears shed by the performers and the interpreter came from the heart; and the sincerity and shame at the U.S. government's role are of the same quality that made the Peter, Paul and Mary symbols of hope in the '60s.

I wonder why Rosenberg thinks we need to be exposed to "the other side" of Peter, Paul and Mary's expose. Isn't that what we see and hear daily in America?
