Went to see "In the Valley of Elah" tonight. Very powerful film with Tommy Lee Jones playing an Iraqi soldier's father. The soldier came back from Iraq and was murdered a couple days later. Tommy Lee Jones trys to solve why his son was killed. Ebert gives it 4 stars. I agree.

As I sat in the theater I thought about Bruce Springsteen's new album, Magic and a piece by David Corn I had read on line from the Nation. Things are terribly wrong in America. It won't be getting better for a long time. Bruce Springsteen is in despair. So am I.
