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 CD Album Releases, 4-20-2010: Merle Haggard, AC/DC, Willie Nelson
old Willie NelsonThe main likely couple of worthwhile new albums this week are from the old hands of country. Over his long career, Willie Nelson has substantially personally broadened and re-defined Country Music. These are mostly fairly straight ahead acoustic arrangements of country, folk and blues standards. I don't know when he's written a particularly memorable new song recently, but as a singer he has definitely aged like vintage wine. Glad to hear him singing stuff like "Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down."

I Am What I Am is Merle Haggard's 875th album. Haven't heard anything from it, so can't say anything about it one way or another.

AC/DC don't seem to want to put out a proper greatest hits album, but seem to like throwing out hashed up re-packaging of their oldies for cheesy movie soundtracks, in this case Iron Man 2 [Deluxe Edition] [CD/DVD].
