Hello, You people SICKEN me. You are nothing but some CALIFORNIA scumbags who THINK they understand where the bluegrass scene came frome. Don't get me wrong...it's not about "butcher holler". Hard times is hard times. But THEATER TRUOUPES are NOT allowed. YOU SUCK. No matter how you do, you will STILL SUCK. We're not cartoons, dude. We're everywhere. "country folks" is anybody who isn't yuppie/hippie SCUM. Everybody who actually works, lives, believes, and DOES REAL LIFE. We HATE you, friends. You are WORTHLESS. From the fake-ass "jonbenet scandal", you're NOTHING. You're pretentious suburban TRASH, pretending to a heritage you wouldn't be worthy of being THROWN OUT OF. It's not where your FROM, friend, it's what you VALUE: REALITY, HOME, FRIENDS (chosen for reasons OTHER than conformity and "clique") VALUES HUMANITY LOVE SO you can BITE me, friends. You are nothing other than poseurs, and worthy only of LAUGHINGLY VIOLENT put-downs! SCREW OFF, JERKS! PS... The women who played NUNS in NUNSENSE in our local THEATER TROUPE, did NOT ask for admitance to the local CATHOLIC COMMUNITY. comprendez vouz, scuzzbags???? Ps. BLOW ME.
