I'll have to miss this one....

....and, I so wanted to be there. I wondered why money raised by the concert wasn't being donated to an organization that would help surviving family members of fallen warriors. But, then, I'm not promoting or attending the concert. Before somone asks, money is taken out of my paycheck for families of fallen Spec Ops soldiers. That's why I wondered why they didn't do the same.
Lineup set for anti-war concert

NEW YORK, N.Y., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan will be the guest of honor at the "Bring 'Em Home" concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom.
