Wierd combo of Praise and Ponder here:
First, reporting in from Eastern Ontario Canada with HEAPS of THANKS for the Live Stream from JazzFest...it REALLY is like a staight shot of adrenaline when we can't make it down to the Fest. The commentary of the various DJs brings it all back home in so many ways. THANK-YOU ALL VERY VERY MUCH...you are keeping a whole bunch of hearts singin' and feets a'swingin' up here North of the Border!
Second, and of course a MAJOR bummer, but it has been a bit surprising that I have heard no commentary about what's going on in the Gulf right now. Is it the feeling that let's get through this weekend of joy first because there is nothing to be done right now about this fresh hell anyways? Or what? Not trying to bum folks out or anything, but especially from the performers I would hope to be hearing some sense of OUTRAGE against the oil companies and government regulators that FAILED BIG TIME to insure that there were working cut-off valves! Just one more example why we have to get off this oil-based treadmill, and I guess it is NOT surprising that we haven't heard a PEEP out of Ms. Drill Baby Drill, EH????
