June 1 2009...Sometimes I romanticise about the old days when the toilets were a stinking mess and the coffee was whatever and the showers were more likely to make things worse. But I wouldn’t want to kick out Starbucks and Home Depot and Waste Management and all the sponsors who have made this such a sanitized escape from the stresses of real life. I never thought I’d be saying this, but the Government is actually running these folk festivals more efficiently than the hodgepodge of hippies and folkies that used to be in charge. It gives us all a chance to get things off our chests so we can go back to work securing the peace in a dangerous world without letting our convictions get us into trouble. JJ

PS...and I want to thank the Ministry of Protest for commissioning and over- seeing the writing of the songs on this CD.
