Actually Steve, alias "Chicago Shorty" wasn't from Texas. He was...gee....from Chicago!

If you haven't read Steve's biography "Facing the Music" by Clay Eals, you should. 778 pages of Steve's life growing up in Chicago (Albany Park), high school at Maine East (with Hillary Rodham as a classmate), college at Univ of Ill and Lake Forest College, Steve's participation in the 60's folk scene in Chicago (Earl of Old Town, Some Place Else, No Exit Coffee House, etc.) and his ongoing career.

I read it while at fishing camp in northern Minnesota last summer and it made for some big yawns at breakfast since I wound up staying up until all hours reading...... couldn't put it down.

Couldn't agree more - just curious and having fun with the age thing.

Couldn't disagree more - waste of time and big money. And - from what I can tell - no support except for a couple left wing patriots crying in the wilderness. McGovern's article does not change that.
