The Folk Song Army Sings Africa

TCS: Tech Central Station - The Folk Song Army Sings Africa:
"Forty years ago, 'The Folk Song Army,' by singer-satirist Tom Lehrer, captured the smugness of Live 8 and the demonstrators at the G-8 summit. One self-described activist says that flying to Scotland, where the summit is meeting, 'shows you that people are passionate about ending poverty...' Unlike the rest of you squares."

Tom Lehrer, lyricist and melodist of the "Folk Song Army" is an article of faith among the self-annointed thinking crowd. They should read him more often.
