    My best friend is from West Virginia.  I imagine he will cry when he reads this and watches the video - then the film when released.  I have tears in my eyes.  Eminem's song about Detroit always brings me to tears when I watch his video.  As an older American whose DNA holds solidarity (son of a Steelworker father - Feminist/FDR Liberal mother)I am deeply saddened about my country and its loss of a great middle & working class, as well as its loss of compassion for the poor.

    We are in an Alice Through the Looking Glass world in the US now - thanks to the extreme right wing and the Reagan legacy.  Deeply Sad.
