Thank you, Marjorie.
Speaking of "degeneration", I have often been surprised at how much the
Scots (and the French Canadians, from my experience) embrace American
country and western music. Somehow, C&W doesn't sound right either with
a Scottish accent or sung in French. So much for cultural purity :)
