"This is a story for Uncle Sam by Uncle Sam." An original narrative ballad providing commentary on the DP Act of 1948. A character called Uncle Sam (the soul of the US) delivers musical selections such as: "You find 'em and We'll use 'em" and "Those People Sure Look Good To Me" - in addition to spoken texts that challenge official US policies towards DPs.
