May he stay, forever Young

Kind of a thrill that a leading Neil Young site picked up on my much-reprinted "Unsung Heroes" of Iraq war protest piece. When my original column about Neil, now in my book, came out, the guy who played trumpet on the Living With War CD wrote me a nice note. Now here is what the site says, followed by the link to what they, and I, wrote: "As we enter the 6th year of the Iraq war with 4,000 U.S. soldiers and thousands of innocent Iraqi's dead, Mitchell's book arrives at a particularly relevant moment to look back at who was wrong -- but just as importantly -- who was right about the fiasco. Among those who Mitchell credits as right on Iraq is Neil Young." http://www.thrasherswheat.org/2008/03/unsung-heroes-of-iraq-war-coverage.html

Hi Greg,
All the best with your book. If only more of those who were right were given an opportunity to be heard.
