The National Folk Dance Thang (Again?!?)
February 19, 2003
The square dance fanatics have done it again. HR 645 (The Promenade Act) to make square dancing the national folk dance was been introduced on February 5, 2003, and has been referred to the Judiciary Committee.
Looks like the USDA is promoting it, although I haven't heard anything about it in various square dance lists.
They did it in 2000 also (here's my comment at the time). I seem to use the same title every time it comes up. Seems like there are more important things for Congress to worry about...like Iraq, the environment, health care, the economy....and about a zillion other things.
