What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

America (The Audiobook) / The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
There is strong evidence that regular viewers of Fox New Channel (where "Fair and Balanced" isn't a belief, it's a slogan) are less well informed than the public as a whole and hold many beliefs that are in direct opposition to the facts. The flip side of the disaster that is "We Report, You Decide" may be found at Comedy Central, home of The Daily Show. Regular viewers of this program are, studies show us, both better educated and better informed than their brethren (and sistren, can't leave them out) who rely on the traditional networks or their cable descendents for both their facts and the interpretation thereof. Which must leave Jon Stewart and company both proud and deeply embarrassed; educating the public is the last thing on their collective mind.

But educate they do, even if only because the only way to get all the jokes is to understand their context. And so it is with America (The Audiobook) - A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction. Because if often a truth is said in jest, these folks are past masters at delivering both in large quantities. One warning, though: do not attempt to listen to this audiobook while driving. The risk of cracking up while you're cracking up is all too real. And with the election looming, we can't afford to lose a single well informed citizen.
