Memorial Day: Let's Talk War & Soldiers

It is common now for many Americans to say "Thank You for your Service" when they meet or even just encounter a person in Military Service. When I hear someone is in the military, I always want to say,  " Oh I am so sorry". I hate war and know it twists and damages even the conquering forces. How do you react when you meet a soldier? Does the knee jerk or even the genuine, "Thank You" help keep our endless wars going? Does  support of the individual soldiers lead to  unquestioning support of the military and the silence of the Anti- War movement ?  Or is it only what they are due, no matter how you feel about war.

Un-American country music
America, in general, and Nashville in particular represents the home of country music. But the liberating spirit of country music is not confined by geographic boundaries. It is free ranging and international. It exists in the quiet country pubs of Ireland, the honky tonk bars of Western Canada and the dusty  outback of Australia. The only cost of entry is an open mind and the willingness to see beyond stereotypes and preconceptions. Please tune in Saturday as we celebrate Swing and Country un-american style.
