Hurray for the Riff Raff Perform "Look Out Mama"
Neocons and other statists and militarists decry the happy fact that Memorial Day for today's Americans is all about hanging out in backyards and having a good time. Perhaps Americans realize in their hearts that no American soldier or sailor has died defending (or promoting) any American's freedom in the past 150 years. So, enjoy the day guilt-free, and enjoy what freedoms you have left.
If I could invite anyone to my backyard this weekend, it might be Hurray for the Riff Raff. I suppose that if only Alynda Lee Segarra, barefoot and all, could make it I wouldn't be all that crushed.
