Howie writes constantly at Most of his posts are politically-oriented though, like me, he often veers off course into the music world. For good reason! When I first met Howie Klein some 30 years ago, he was President of Reprise Records, so it’s in his blood.
I never know what I’ll see when I log on to DTW, and today didn’t disappoint.
The first thing I saw today was a post from Howie headlined, “Tim Scott And George Santos Are Both Gay Republicans— But VERY Different Gay Republicans“. Whoo boy, it’s going to be one of those days!!

In terms of news, well, proud boy Joe Biggs was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison for seditious conspiracy. We’ll have to wait until next week for Enrique Tarrio’s sentencing. They do say good things are worth waiting for, I guess…

I shared a couple of songs today that I’ll also share here.

First up, one from a singer/songwriter named Julie Lavery that was recommended by a listener who obviously chose well

And second, a new song from Billy Bragg! As he wrote on his YouTube page, “Since I saw that clip of Oliver Anthony singing his song ‘Rich Men North of Richmond’, the ghost of Woody Guthrie has been whispering in my ear. “Help that guy out” Woody keeps telling me “Let him know there’s a way to deal with those problems he’s singing about”. So today I sat down and wrote this response to Mr Anthony’s song, for people like him and people like you.”

It’s called “Rich Men Earning North Of a Million”
