    This winter I decided that the SJs were too small of a force to ever come close to undoing a millionth of all the harm he has caused. To you and everyone you know.

    The problem I have with this is that Silver Jews may well have been the best use of his talents. As a musician, he is supremely talented; will he be as effective as an activist?

    I'm all for trying to make a difference via social activism, but there are a lot of people who can do that, possibly better than he can. A lot fewer can make music as good as his.

    Still, best of luck to him, even if I am bummed at the thought of no more Silver Jews albums.
