is my second music-related post in one week.
 Salon has
an href="http://www.salon.com/ent/audiofile/?last_story=/ent/audiofile/2007/04/19/patti_smith/">article
with podcast, with href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patti_Smith">Patti Smith.
 The occasion is the forthcoming release of her new album, href="http://blogcritics.org/archives/2007/03/29/075948.php">Twelve.
 The interview is not so much about the album; it’s more about
her political views, and a little bit of rock and roll history.
 If you do visit the page, be sure to download the href="http://salonmedia.vo.llnwd.net/o1/mp3s/2007/apr/conversations_smith.mp3">podcast,
because it is much more extensive than the written part of the
interview.

Plus it is always more fun to hear Patti’s voice
than to read a transcript.  

I have posted about Patti Smith before ( href="http://trots.blogspot.com/2005/08/power-of-zero.html">The
Power of Zero, href="http://corpus-callosum.blogspot.com/2005/09/contemplate-this.html">Contemplate
This) and I notice that I listened to her a lot during a
tumultuous time in my life.  But this is a time of healing for
me.  I wish I could say the same for our country, and for the
countries were we have unraveled the social fabric.
