Audio Post of the Day: Eve of Destruction

With the drumbeat of news from Iraq, Palestine, and countless other places, not to mention global warming, looming water shortages, and other environmental disasters, Barry McGuire's 1965 hit "Eve of Destruction" might seem appropriate. Some of the lyrics are not only dated, but were never correct to begin with ("Think of all the hate there is in Red China"), but some are timeless (think Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and other phony embracers of "God" when you hear "Hate your next-door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace"). The bottom line, though, which you won't find in the song, is that it's never been more important to struggle for change.
