Your Turn: Activist Background


Do you think — even for a second — I could have passed on the cover of the new Neil Young “anti-war” album?

Like every graphic that lands here, I’m curious about the semiotics.  Given its brown paper proximity to the subject matter, however, The BAG recuses itself in favor of your interpretation.

Also: The LAT Neil Young Interview;  Living With War blog; and a nice post by Mark Bolas.
