Joan Baez "can't fit in" at Walter Reed

Joan Baez accepted an invitation from John Mellencamp to sing for recovering soldiers at Walter Reed, but was then uninvited by the hospital. Baez says she was "not approved" by the U.S. Army to participate in the concert, and Mellancamp was told that Baez "can't fit in here, period."

Of course, the Army has a right to keep anti-war personalities away from its facilities. But anyone who recalls the Nixon days--the vicious punishment of Jane Fonda (which is still going on) because she dared to save thousands of Vietnamese lives, the extortion of Yoko Ono and the attempt to deport John Lennon--may be feeling a bit of a chill right now.
