On Native GroundCONGRESS Fiddles While the Planet Burns

If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears, does it make a sound? If an oppressive government brutally kills its young and it's not reported, has it really happened? And if young people are giving their lives for democracy, does anyone care if a weird pop star has died? Implicit in these questions, which have been running around in my brain all week, is the uncomfortable fact that I still really believe that news can change the world and the truth can make you free. Michael Jackson's death may have changed my mind.

His sixth studio album, X , is a great example.

While some of Carney's musical contemporaries rail against fans who want to shoot grainy handheld video of shows instead of being in the moment, the Keys' most outspoken member is fine with people who just want to kick back and film clips from the Akron, Ohio, duo's upcoming tour in support of this year's Turn Blue.
