Born Again American

Yeah, it's kind of corny. But it's a good folk song. It was written by Keith Carradine for a Norman Lear-backed project for the occasion of the change back to democratic government that starts next Tuesday.



Bill Moyers featured a portion of the song on his PBS Journal Friday evening. There's a related Web site that encourages citizen involvement.

I especially like the fact that one segment of the video is shot in front of Jackson Square in New Orleans.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
