Here is my own follow-up:
Having reached the Arts & Leisure Section of the Sunday NYTimes of April
24, 1994 (yes, 1994), on p. 22 I found an article by Ann Hornaday on the
documentary "High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music" written &
directed by Rachel Liebling.
I believe that it is in this group that questions have popped up re: this
This brings me to something crucial. When and how will we be able to post
not simply our own messages and elucubrations, but *printed items" of
(possible) interest to a few or to many peope or groups. Until then, the
Net, amazing though it is,  will still be lame.
One answer, I suppose, is to scan the article and then send it. But this
seems to involve expensive equipment, bulky machines, and a fairly long
process. It is also (I am told) not that quick and easy to scan a newspaper
page. Hand scanners might be simpler, but then, according to my
betters--though not necessarily elders-- those gizmos don't work well.
I wonder what the whiz-kids (and adults) among us have to say to all this.
And since this might be of interest to persons in a plethora of groups, no
matter what their specialty, I will post this message to more than one
