They were glad I wasn’t in Madison


The only tune I can carry is a tuna sandwich. Dave Blaska and the Blaska Choir made their debut in the Capitol yesterday. I understand they are now available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.

Their performance forced a change in venue for the permitless Solidarity Singers who gracefully exited the stage (left, of course) to perform for the outdoor audience instead. Any protests by the pigeons were sadly ignored by the assembled media.

Blogger Ann Althouse reported this interesting tidbit from the latest happening music scene,

At 3:01, a man up on the 1st floor — probably and anti-Walker guy — asks the group to sing “This Land Is Your Land,” and there’s a bit of a pause, and then they sing “The Marine Hymn.” That’s an interesting left-wing/right-wing incident!

Could have been worse. The Blaska Choir could have sung the version of “This Land Is Your Land” I learned in grade school. It was a rough school.

This land ain’t your land.
This land is my land.
I got a shotgun.
You don’t got one.
You better get off
‘fore I blow your head off.
This land is private property.

(I shudder to think of the reaction to school children singing this version today. Back then we got a scowl, or possibly even a scolding. Now they would probably take away our chicken fingers.)
