If anyone's interested, Joan was here just a few weeks ago. Absolutely fabulous and have been a fan since 1962 when I first heard her on a record. In any case, yes, there were protesters, signs with "Liberals kill babies" blah, blah blah. IF has a small venue but great shows, so seats were the best. Two hours. The full story is available on the Daily KOS, wherein Joan's response is also covered.
