Today's show marks the four-year anniversary of the war in Iraq, a war that I -- and a majority of Americans, if polls are to be believed -- feel is a horrific mistake. I do support the troops, and that's why I think we should bring them home as quickly as possible.
Here's what you'll hear today (direct download here):
The Majestic Twelve: "American Rage" (from the album Schizophrenology)
The Nashville Session Players: "Some Soldiers Come Home" (Podshow)
R-Three: "The Wolf I Feed" (from the album Perceptual Distortion)
Terry Prong: "Can't Have Peace" (Podshow)
The passages from Paul Robeson and Archibald MacLeish come from the 1993 edition of Singing the Living Tradition, the Unitarian Universalist hymnal.
And if you're as concerned by the war and the treatment of our wounded veterans as I am -- or about the lack of armor that leads to some of the shattered lives -- visit the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America site to see how you can help.
