Obligatory music post

One of the songs on my Winamp playlist that I've been playing over and over lately is Billy Bragg's "Help Save the Youth of America". Gee, dunno why:

Listen to the voice of the soldier
Down in the killing zone
Talking about the cost of living
And the price of bringing him home

They're already shipping the body bags
Down below the Rio Grande
But you can fight for democracy at home
And not in some foreign land

And the fate of the great United States
Is entwined with the fate of us all
And the incident at Chernobyl proves
The world we live in is very small

And the cities of Europe have burned before
And they may yet burn again
And if they do I hope you understand
That Washington will burn with them
Omaha will burn with them
Los Alamos will burn with them

Anyway, find a way to listen to it. I leave it to you to find a way.
