I caught the "Tell us the Truth" tour yesterday, this edition featuring (among others) Billy Bragg and Steve Earle; Bragg was particularly impressive (the political remarks in his between-song patter were more cogent and pointed than Howard Zinn's brief opener).

My attention fastens on the weirdest things at these events -- like Earle's succinct report of an onstage technical glitch: "The sumbitch ain't connected to the motherfucker." The same explanation might apply to some of the problems we're having in Washington...
