I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

The Fat Lady Sings

You have bees? We don't have any bees. Even the carpenter bees who jealously guard our front and back deck have gone missing this year – and I count on those little buzzers to keep down the wasp population. We have some very dangerous wasps down here; plus I miss that lovely drone the bees make as they hover over their nests. Lovely picture, my dear. I hope you submitted it to "Good Planets".


We have so many bees! We have about 5 or 6 beekeepers within flying distance, and so far (fingers crossed) the colony collapse thing hasn't hit too hard here.

The Fat Lady Sings

Really? You are lucky, my dear. Nary a bee to be found down here. Last summer we were awash with them; this year it’s been tiny wasps doing all the pollination – and then not enough. Our tomato harvest suffered. So did our pumpkins. For all the vine we got (on both) – few of the blossoms did more than just fall to the ground.
