Postie finds country music at pro-troops rally "polarizing and bizarre"

August 14th, 2005 6:23 PM

Current Washington Post Metro columnist (and former reporter) Marc Fisher was featured on a live chat last Thursday and was asked about the Post's participation in Freedom Walk, a September 11 rally for the troops sponsored by the Pentagon.

Fisher is apparently not a Clint Black fan: "The tone of the promotions for the event is, to use the technical term, yucky. If it's really supposed to honor the 9/11 dead, I don't see why you'd have a country concert on the Mall, and given the population and preferences of people who live in this region, the choice of country music is polarizing and bizarre."
