What's a libertarian?

To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New Album Releases, 1-15-2008: Ringo Starr, Magnetic Fields, Aretha Franklin
young Ringo Starr whacking the skinsNew album releases are still a little thin in the new year. The big name new album is Liverpool 8 from good ol' Ringo Starr. It's his first proper album in about half a decade, and his first release on Capitol in 30 years. This album involves the production services of Eurythmic Dave Stewart.

Stephen Merritt dba Magnetic Fields has a new album this week called Distortion.

Aretha Franklin has Beautiful Ballads on RCA. This smells like a compilation album, but the only song title I recognize was "Freeway of Love."

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has an SACD version of Ilembe: Honoring Shaka Zulu from last year.
