Daniel Hecht

I see that the guitarist Daniel Hecht has now for a long time been instead the novelist Daniel Hecht, having given up guitar due to hand pain: http://www.danielhecht.com/qafaqs2.htm

I was listening to his Willow album and was curious what became of him. I had no prior knowledge of there being a novelist Daniel Hecht, by the way. :)

Blessed Sam Seder!

Mike Malloy is away for some reason; Sam Seder is substituting tonight and for the rest of the week.

It’s really clear to me that Sam is better than Mike. The main difference is that Sam recognizes and accepts his role as a leader, and so makes you feel capable of acting and gives you some idea of what to do, while Malloy refuses his role as a leader, and projects his refusal to lead onto the American people generally, blaming them for not taking control of our national problems and doing something about them.

I really hate that kind of denigration of the American people. Jesus Josephson would have verbally dropkicked someone who did that.

Sam motivates us, and wants us to give to the Strange Bedfellows money bomb, that is the latest money-raising arm of the FISA-gutting accountability movement: http://accountabilitynowpac.com/

Actually I think it would be fine by Sam to give instead to the Blue America PAC FISA-accountability fund: http://www.actblue.com/page/fisa :)
