To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Ruthie



I found this cover of Black Sabbath's classic in St. Clair's weekly "Roaming Charges" column at CP.

No shit, I've always thought a great singer (Ozzy wasn't) could make hay with this song, like Eddie Vedder and Lucinda Williams have with Dylan's "Masters of War."
