hint hint, he did not add

One other Finland story: one morning, we met up with a group of students from a big university in Helsinki. "How many of you read Helsingen Sanomat every day?" I asked. (It's the big serious paper, the equivalent of the Times.) A forest of hands. "And how many of you sometimes distrust it, or suspect that you're not getting the whole story from it?" A roomful of young Finns, looking at me perplexedly.

A really good idea: Protest Records. Yes, the Beasties track is awful, but I really like the Jim O'Rourke one, and I bet there'll be more good stuff shortly.
