Did Ya Rock Out?

Quick survey question: did you watch Al Gore's Live Earth concerts this weekend? I'm a huge music fan and usually try to catch these festivals but caught nary a second of this one. Nor did I hear of anyone else who watched it. For these reasons, I find it difficult to believe that 2 billion people watched it happen. I couldn't find it on the TV, and we have a pretty decent cable selection. And we're to believe that a third of the world watched it?

This sounds like a spin-job, trying to sell that global warming is the most important issue . . . well, in the world.

I didn't feel the funk.
