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!

At the risk of sounding cliche, I have it. Jeff and I have been through the wringer the past few years and even though things have been and are beyond strained, we are committed. We wrote our own wedding vows and they mean something to us and I know if we can make it through this time, we will be back at some point stronger than ever.

The Fat Lady Sings

Good for you, my dear! Glad to hear it. As with everything - I wish you all the luck in the world.

Nice to be hearing from you again......


I don't have it, but my parents have been married for 35 years, and they are the happiest couple I've ever seen. The marriage was arranged (we're Indian) so they first met on their wedding day.

The Fat Lady Sings

I'm happy for your parents, Maree. I WANT true love to exist - I've just never run into any. But it MUST be real - or so many artists wouldn't devote their entire lives to chronicling its existence.


It is real - just rare. And it probably doesn't look like you would think.
