    And I've been there. Not as devoid of cash, but close--and gone from everyone. And it was the most free and alive I've ever felt.

    I've seen this issue/story really divide folks (you can witness some of the discussion on Youtube around Vedder's music), and it's interesting to witness the type of person who simply calls him a fool and nothing more, and those who praise his actions. I guess many of us fall somewhere in the middle.

    For me, I relate...without an ounce of hate.
