Steve Perry: I’m No Racist
Posted by mdome at Classic Rock

Former Journey singer Steve Perry has strongly denied allegations from US comedienne Sarah Silverman that he’s a racist.

In a recent Playboy interview the controversial Silverman claimed that “the one-time lead singer of a very popular band from the 1980s” said to her: “You’re my favourite comedian. You have the best...
*Dan, Jr. / Junior's Eyes Note: From what I've experienced, Sarah Silverman seems a talentless, annoying piece. I had never heard anything bad about Steve Perry before this, and it's hard to believe anything Silverman says. Without witnesses, it's hard to say whether or not this was just another attempt at gaining attention, or if there is any truth to the implication.

The band are due to play Wels Airport in Northern Austria on May 22. This was the target for heavy bombing raids during World War Two and authorities are concerned there are still unexploded ones around the area, which pose a serious threat.

A Blogger’s Faith in Government Restored: The Formation
of the First-Ever Congressional Hockey Caucus

By pucksandbooks at On Frozen Blog

The greeting from the congressman in his office this week was sudden and startling: “Can you blog and walk at the same time?” Nebraska Representative Lee Terry, smiling, asked as he stepped out of a closed-door meeting to meet me.

I was more than a little nervous meeting the congressman on Tuesday. Standing next to the world’s greatest hockey player 40 or 50 nights each winter with a digital recorder is old hat; being in the Rayburn House Office Building awaiting a one-on-one interview with a member of Congress most definitely is not. Washington is home to the no. 1 power play in all the NHL, but that’s a power play that’s no match for the power played up on Capitol Hill...
