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!

What a great memory! I spent about a year living in a fantasy world in which somehow I either was Kwai Chang Caine, or was his sparring partner, or we rescued people together, or something. I suspect we don't know yet how he really died. The roil of expectations in that family, like the Richardsons, must have been epic.

The Fat Lady Sings

I heard today that it may not have been suicide. His death may mirror that of INXS leas singer Michael Hutchence: auto-erotic. In other words: Carradine strangled himself by accident. But there are huge questions surrounding that theory as well. I think it's safe to say - Carradine's death will be much talked about for a very long time - as was that of Bruce Lee. Kung Fu was originally created for Lee, you know. He even filmed the pilot, as I recall. But TV executives in the early 70's didn't think audiences would accept a Chinese hero - so they fired Lee and cast Carradine instead. Carradine always felt bad about that. Odd then that his death will hold the same mystique as Lee's.
