    The problem with hugging trees is that they don't hug back.

    Unfortunately, it's attached to the rest of her.

    She's always been a barking moonbat, although I give her credit for one moment of honesty in an otherwise blinkered career as an activist. She didn't turn a blind eye towards the atrocities committed by the government of Vietnam after they conquered the south, and she even organized a full-page advertisement in which she stated that the communists had created a nightmare, making her one of the few in the antiwar movement to actually criticize the Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge, as opposed to Jane Fonda, who wrote a rebuttal in which she claimed that she was unable to substantiate Baez's "claims" about the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge.

    Sadly, she learned nothing from this, and was a vocal antiwar moonbat after 9/11. I wonder how long it will be before she notices that the Islamists are no better than the communists when it comes to the human rights that she claims to believe in.

    Okay, so she's a nut who wants to sleep with the birds. She's 69, and was at least trying to do what she liked to do when she fell and got hurt.


    I always liked her version of The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.

    Except that her death by ham sandwich is a big urban legend. She died of a heart attack, likely caused by morbid obesity.

    True. She'd also done a number of crash diets, which are bad for the heart.

    My youngest daughter is a Scooby Doo fanatic and we've been watching the hour-long shows, when they would have celebrity guest stars, one of whom was Mama Cass. The running gag on the show was that she could eat as much as Shaggy and Scooby.

    No one denies that she was and is a great singer. It's just that in order to listen to the singing, we had to put up with the lunacy. Laura Ingraham got it right when she wrote Shut Up and Sing.

    Or it could have been related to the years of massive drugs she'd taken.
