What's important

Once in a while we're reminded of what it means to be a true American that has nothing to do with flags or slogans or songs (original language or translated) or faiths or parties. Once in a while we're reminded that saying nothing is sometimes akin to agreement, even if unintended and that to speak up is what it truly means to be an American. An America is spoken for in a multitude of voices, speaking for an array of ideas.

Maybe someday we'll live up to our promise. We'll look outside of our windows and see beyond our yards and realize it not about my eyes only.

Go to neilyoung.com and listen to the streaming of his new album: "Living with War". The crazy cancuck has a pretty good idea of what it means to be American. He shames some of us.

One of my new favorite songs: "Let's Impeach the President".

So many concert films these days. Young's is supposed to be pretty amazing. It's at the Cinema Center right now. And there is a drop-dead-phenomenal-cinematic-affair coming to DVD in the coming weeks, "THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON". Which is the only justice the man has ever been served.
