Editor's note: imagine doing this in elementary school PE instead of dodge ball, floor hockey, basketball or baseball. FUNNN! I can imagine doing this in a place like California in the hippy communities of the 70s but not the midwest or the south. Now if they were replacing some of the indoctrinating curriculum with this then I'd more accepting of it. Personally, I say just start teaching them the theories of David Icke from kindergarten on and then anything goes for gym class.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
