On a brighter note, the folksinging group Peter, Paul and Mary returned to the stage for a concert in Hartford,CT. on Sunday 9/28/2008 after a long hiatus.
Mary Travers had a bone marrow transplant and now requires Oxygen,delivered via a nasal cannula, to sing. Her voice is as wonderful as ever and the group delivered a spirited and enjoyable concert to an SRO audience.
I believe they will be doing a limited number of concerts at different venues and if you have a chance-it is well worth the cost to view them live and on stage.
