truly a pity. considering today's post in Today's Music News, it seems like the good ol' US of A has more in common with China than we'd like to admit.

Remember that story about how there are now more than a million names on the terrorist watch list?

I HATE the USA! I LOVE Morocco and ALL ARABIC nations! Of course people will have similar names, how ridiculous is that!? This was the ONLY show that I have been looking forward to with giddy anticipation all year. Homeland Security should be really most cautious of citizens like me.

I, too, am saddened and infuriated by "Homeland Security" decision to delay visas to the Master Musicians. I'd like to point out that the group led by Bachir Attar (see www.jajouka.com), who were scheduled to play at Neumo's and have been acknowledged as the inheritors of the village's traditions by William Burroughs and the Kingdom of Morocco, are NOT the same as the group hosting the Brian Jones event posted by www.joujouka.net
