The L-Word

What we talk about when we don't talk about love

That's why I'm taking my wife and kids to hear Mason Jennings at the State Theater on Valentine's Eve. He's celebrating the release of his new CD, Use Your Voice, the title of which can be read as a call from a wise young soul-leader to his fans to do what all the old world-leaders obviously can't: change this fucked-up world--not only by speaking their minds, but by spreading the kind of love that happens regularly at his gigs between friends, lovers, and strangers.

Now all I need is a card, or a candidate, to put it all in words for me.
