Judicial Digression

As I was listening to Streetlight Manifesto on my Mp3 player,

and drafting a proposed order for the judge to sign regarding a motion to remand . . .

It occurred to me that there must be some irony involved in that moment.

I have become the Man.

When I was in high school, nearly half of my friends were self-proclaimed anarchists. The other half just didn’t care about anything but maintaining their lives below the mainstream through music and drinking and abject apathy. And the few of us that weren’t in either group were still flaming liberals and—as far as I remember—not big supporters of the Man.

But now I’ve sold-out, and I’ve corrupted my favorite music in the process.

Because I’ve taken it with me into the judge’s chambers, the establishment . . .

It is resting on my Mp3 player right next to the previous day’s podcast of the Glenn Beck radio program.

The fusion of entertainment and enlightenment . . . ?

Aw yeah. I’m the Man.

Streetlight Manifesto? Whoever told you about that band must be pretty awesome. They need all the publicity they can get...otherwise there may not be any new albums, which would be a travesty I think.
