Audio Post of the Day: Fortunate Son

"Fortunate Son" is a 1969 song by Creedence Clearwater Revival, from their album "Willy and the Poor Boys." As relevant as the theme was back then, with "fortunate sons" like George Bush either avoiding the draft altogether or avoiding being sent to Vietnam, it's even more true today, when it's the rare "fortunate son" indeed who finds himself (or herself) in Iraq or Afghanistan.


Update: A picture (courtesy of WIIIAI) of a couple of "fortunate daughters" who have found better things to do than to fight in the war their father thinks is so vital to the future of the world.
