Profiles in Cowardice: Every time I happen to be in a place that plays Lee Greenwood's song "God Bless the USA," it gets me thinking. You're heard the song before, often at political rallies (usually for Republicans)--it was almost the secondary national anthem for a while after Sept. | Political Animal by Brian Morton

Gimme Ten: Since my column only runs every other week, I don't always get the chance to chime in or harmonize or resonate or what have you with whatever is the "theme," if you will, of a particular episode of Baltimore's Onliest Alternative Paper Weekly that is also pixellated onto the Universal Resource Locator of the citypaper dot-to-the-com, and last week was a non-Wrong week for me, columnwise, but it was also the "Top Ten" week, one of my favoritest compositional themes, because you get to, like, poop out a list of stuff (people like Things about Stuff), put 'em in bold type, use your opinions, and then presto-poof-voilà you are done, and if you work it right, you gets paid. | Mr. Wrong by Joe MacLeod
