Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Walmart "Edits"

No, you're not smoking something--the cover of
Willie Nelson's new reggae album comes in two separate versions: regular and Wal-Mart.
The cover art of Countryman, released Tuesday, features green marijuana leaves over a red and yellow background and looks similar to a large pack of rolling papers.

However, for those looking to snap up the CD at Wal-Mart's famously rolled back prices, the cover features a palm tree in place of the offending leaves, a change made by Universal Music Group Nashville out of deference to the retailing giant's strict guidelines with regards to lyrics and packaging.

I got some traffic from here--I think "next blog" sent me over. I'm glad I checked it out, for this post alone!

Willie Nelson and Wal-Mart are from two different worlds, to say the least.

I'm glad to know Countryman's been released. I've been waiting for it ever since I heard Willie had cut a reggae album and that it had a cover of "Worried Man." I'll definitely NOT be buying it from Wal-Mart, though.

Nice blog, BTW.
