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!

I'm so sorry to hear about the trip to the ER!

I'm so enjoying Adam Lambert's warm, grounded, engaging presence as well as his singing. I love that song, too. Everyone who watches Idol has already seen those pictures--Adam's parents are cheering him on, and so are millions of others.

Thank you, Joanna. The American health care system is very badly broken, I fear. Hopefully President Obama has a plan to fix that - though I don't envy him in trying. So many things are broken these days. Fixing them all is a task Herculean in nature. Sisyphus had an easier time with that rock!

As for O'Reilly's attempt to spike Adam's Idol prospects...I'd seen those pictures too. Thing is - Billo hadn't (as is evident by his faux shock). He thought it was news - that he could leverage their exposure into a loss for Adam. I really hope he is proven wrong. So far - I've been pleasantly surprised by Adam’s success. I wasn’t sure America was ready for Adam ‘Glam’bert in all his brilliant glory. Now to be fair – he has toned it down these last few weeks. Evidently his mother requested he hide his light under a bit of a bushel. I miss the original Adam – black nail polish and all (a color I’ve been wearing for years, by the way).

I grew up in the theatre (since age 11) – so I’m comfortable around that kind of flashiness. Hell - my friends and I used to stage impromptu balcony scenes from ‘West Side Story’ fer Chrissakes! And when I wasn’t on stage – I belonged to a group called The Society for Creative Anachronism. We all dressed up as our favorite medieval warrior or lady and held the occasional war. I live my life out loud, my dear – always have. I don’t care what anyone thinks. So Adam to me is old home week. Been there, done that (and I have my own photos to prove it!).

He has a golden voice that boy does!! And he seems like such a sweetheart. Honey I'm so sorry to hear you've had another bout of bad crap, damn I wish I could fix it for you. (((((hugs)))))
