I have been trying to figure out how to contact you and/or your camp to inform you of this TERRIBLE THING!
Fox News used a portion of YOUR "Come Talk to Me" in a promo for - Fox News Live Desk - cable channel 40 - about 2:15 on Thursday, May 22 2009 - I was flipping the cable news stations and was STUNNED!
(Just heard that the McCain camp had to apologize to Jackson Brown for using his music during their convention - and it reminded me of the notes that I took.)
Not sure if they really "get it" - or are just using it because of the lyrics? But, it made me feel ill - that THEY - the most closed-minded, propaganda station. was using YOUR song - I feel ill just thinking about it again - It is just wrong on so many levels.
I know there are a million other more important things happening in the world - and this seems petty - but it made my skin crawl.
Or, maybe it is a good way to loosen them up subliminally - so you might be o.k. with it.
LOVE - PEACE -

Maybe they went through the record company? I am big PG, DMB, U2, etc. fan and I find it funny when more conservative people don't seem to notice very progressive lyrics in such work. I try to think that there might be some hope in that.
