Bands Against Bush
Dear Free Williamsburg,
concept is Juvenile and silly. If I throw down more
than $30.00 for a ticket, I don't want to hear the performers'
rants and raves. Please consider more respect for the audiences,
and please consider what you may be doing negatively to
the career of some musician that considers it hip to support
causes that he knows little about. Don't forget what happened
to Danny Glover.
--Sincerely, Gary L. DeClue

Calling Bush a Pig Fucker Makes Us Slanted?
In your "About Us" section you state - "We
do not want direction, a mission,
or a political slant. We want to be open."
But then on your mainpage you have a huge "Bands Against
(which was very good by the way), and "Bush Rhymes
With Pig Fucker" on the
top. It doesn't seem like you're doing a very good job with
not having a
I'm not disagreeing with your stand, by the way. I just
want to read about
music and movies and find a new place to drink a fabulous
cover stuff I love. I just don't love having anyone's politics
in my face.
Thanks for my 2 cents. And the Belle and Sebastian record
was the best last
year, and yes - thank you for having the balls to say the
Outkast record has
a lot of crap mixed in with the brilliance.
Editor's Note: When we first launched the site in 1998
it was our intent to provide a forum for good writing,
regardless of political affiliation. I always find it
enriching to read articles and essays written from a counter-perspective
as opposed to solely liberal articles which merely reinforce
my own opinions. We live in a very liberal community and
frankly rarely get submissions from conservatives, only
hate mail. In the past two years, I have been appalled
by the trampling of the Constitution by the five riders
of the Apocalypse (George W. Bush, John Ashcroft, Karl
Rove, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney) and have become more
open about my discontent. We have removed the line in
our dated About Us statement that suggested we have no
political bias. We are still open to running counter opinions,
should we receive them.
