Scott McCaughey's editorial in "The Seattle Times"
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin J. Martin has a lot on his plate, what with his rush to alter existing media-ownership rules in favor of giant media conglomerates. He'll be in Seattle on Friday for the sixth and final public hearing on media ownership, which will examine the prudence of relaxing current stipulations. Jet lag is tough, but the crowd Martin will encounter here is likely to be even tougher.

The Seattle proceedings were announced at the last minute, giving citizens little time to prepare arguments. Many question whether Martin is sincere in his assessment of public opinion which, when it comes to further media consolidation, is decidedly negative.

Another colaboration in the works

From "The Village Voice" interview with Steve Wynn

And the recording project after that:
Steve Wynn: “I’m doing a baseball record. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, a record entirely about baseball, touting specific players or incidents, things like that. I’ve been talking about this for a long time now, thinking of ways to do it, and I met up with Scott McCaughey from R.E.M., Young Fresh Fellows, the Minus Five. We met up about half a year ago and I told him about it and it turns out he’s as big a baseball fan as I am and he flipped out, so we’re going to get together, Scott and myself and Peter Buck and Linda (Miracle 3 drummer Pitmon), and do the record in December in Portland because Peter’s got a studio there. It’s pretty convenient. And again, we’re going to write a lot on our own before we get together and then collaborate once we’re there. I’ll probably come back from Slovenia and watch the World Series and write during the entire Series.”

I never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before

Well they were walking down the street
I never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Well there was something about the way they combed their hair
and something about the clothes that they wore
Well they don't act so cool, they're just regular Joes
Well they're the Young Fresh Fellows now nobody knows them
I've never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellows!
