I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Nothing Is For Free

There will be change…but the question is...how much we’ll have to pay for it…I’m sorry but if this was so historic then maybe my kids should be able to see it…for free. But then again, maybe the lesson here is there’s a cost to everything…even Pete Seeger’s “This land is your land”

“…the Presidential Inauguration Committee had sold exclusive rights to broadcast this extraordinarily, historically, inclusive "We Are One" concert at Lincoln Memorial to HBO. So those of us who hadn't had the foresight -- or the financial wherewithal -- to subscribe to HBO (or to one of the cable or satellite dish companies that had worked out an agreement with HBO) would not be able to see or hear it.”

Can’t tell you the number of times over my life time I’ve sung this song…but this one time brought a tear to my eye….for all that’s gone before and yet to be…
