Mick--

That article by P.F. Sloan was just fascinating--it's always great to hear those stories behind the songs, especially when the author himself or herself is telling them. Really striking the violent reaction to Eve of Destruction, and then the after-the-fact cynicism that P. F. Sloan had written it to ride the protest wave.
