When Will True Democracy Really Come to the USA?

Leonard Cohen ponders it--in this remarkable spoken word rendition of one of his greatest songs.   "Sail on oh might ship of state/ to the shores of need/ past the reefs of greed/ through the squalls of hate."  And what the hell, we'll throw in his "Anthem," too.  Ring the bells that still can ring.

Thank you, Greg, for posting this and reminding me of this stirring song.
On Canada Day (7/1), I tweeted Leonard Cohen singing Suzanne, with all its Montreal references, and sung in that city in 2008.
