What a price for the performance.

You're right, Kris wrote it, but Janis gave it life.  I certainly don't 
associate the song with Kristofferson (and yeah, you got it right <grin>).

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Nothing don't mean nothing honey, if it ain't free
Feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
You know, feeling good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee"

What an incredible fire, extinguished far, far too early...

Joe

Wasn't it a selling point of Unix? That "All *nix's  are the same so you
can chose the hardware to run your stuff on?
