Tony is one of the last American heroes. We could all learn a lot from him. Live strong, Tony, live strong!

Gonna be a lot more of this, when making $10/hr tax-free brings more money home than making $30/hr and paying taxes on it.

Plus folks won't need to work to get health insurance, since you and I will be paying for it with OUR jobs and taxes.

He's working for a living and feeding himself. Isn't it enough that he's not burdening the system? You conservatives would do well to learn from this guy. But you'll never be satisfied until you've pounded every piece of the American Dream into the ground.

Thank you Mr. Pohlad. It's nice of you right wingers to remind us that taxpayers foot the bill for those who are poorer. Distract our attention from the fact that Reaganomics has been transffering the wealth to the rich for the last 30 years. But be aware, the shrinking middle class are becoming informed, and are starting to figure out where their income really is being siphon off. Ziggy better get his cut from Pawlenty soon or it will be to late!

I enjoy hearing the street musicians. They are doing something constructive with their time and talents.

Pioneer Press posters have got to be some of the most nattering nabobs of negativity around. Lighten up already.

He paid his debt to society. What more do you want? Perhaps you'd be happier if he re-offended? I suppose you never made a mistake or have done nothing you regret?

First of all, he is a mediocre musician at best. He is also a superficial phoney, because he does not understand what the blues is. The blues is not a hackneyed expression of "I is so sad" and depressed. The primary beauty of the blues is emotion, which people like him don't understand.
