    I saw the cover but couldn't care less. I stopped giving Rolling Stone any credibility back about the time that they started calling Jane's Addiction talented. If they couldn't get music right then I figured their political commentary had to be even worse.

    It pisses me off primarily because our country took in
    his family and he and his brother paid us back by
    terrorizing an American tradition!

    As to Rolling Stone I haven't ever bought one
    and don't intend to now.

    Perhaps it's just a marketing/advertising ploy?

    You know, to get attention?
    To get people talking about The Rolling Stone magazine again?

    Seems to have worked.

    I could generally follow their reviews, but not specifically agree on much. If I could get the general vibe that "you might want to listen to this" then I would. Otherwise, meh. And yes, their political understanding is about on par with whatever MTV could muster.

    Maybe they sought to start a discusiion that was different to the usual "They hate us so we must hate them back harder!" crap.

    Big whoop. 20% of the people that made Time magazine's Man of the Year have been genocidal, murderous asswipes.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    As was said, Rolling Stone can put whoever they want on their cover and people will buy it or not, or never again. Charles Manson was on the cover back in the day too.




    It's the picture that is disturbing. It does not jibe with calling him a monster in the text of the cover. We probably wouldn't be talking about it had he more resembled a remorseless Timothy McVeigh.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
