I have a great idea, guys.  If you want to have this discussion and veer off into a realm other than blues music, take it to Facebook.

That said, if you would follow my example here on how to condense the size a response to the essential elements you may very well be helping out some of of friends abroad.

>>> Yes, old Henry was an Asshole of first magnitude...He was the Koch Brothers of his day, trying to buy politicians, bust labor unions among other things...Ford also was the one who, at his own expense, published the first American edition of the infamous "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" one of the most anti-semitic books ever written...Originally published by  the Russian Orthodox and Czarist leaders before the revolution...It's been used to defame and attack Jews  all over the world....Hell, if I had half the power he claimed my ancestors had, you'd all be in trouble...but I can't reveil the secret! (Ha!)....Ford was a bitter man, and obviously a Republican and arch-Conservative...Has nothing changed other than the people being persecuted (substitute Blacks, Latinos and Muslims for the Jews).
