James McMurtry

A friend just told me about James McMurtry.  This friend is very political.  I used to be very political (see prior post Faith Revisited).  He especially recommended the song, We Can't Make It Here Anymore.  I reluctantly listened to it.  I've been trying to stay away from political stuff.  I honestly feel I have some mild form of PTSD associated with it.  My stomach knots up and I want to get away.  I tried taking part in a march prior to the Bush invasion of Iraq and I had to leave half way through.  
Listening to this song I had the same stomach tightening sensations but I keep playing it.  McMurtry played last week at the new Helsinki club in Hudson.  I wish I was there.
