The Bard of Our Great Depression
Every Depression needs a Bard, and for that I nominate somebody who was born during the last Big One, Leonard Cohen.
Here's an NPR link that takes one to an hour of Cohen's phenomenal recent concert in New York.
He's touring the U.S., by the way. Tickets can be purchased here. He's coming back to New York in just a few months, fortunately. We need him!
