Sure.  So you think this is a call for democratic values?  You think the 
bankers there in Myrtle Beach should invite the poor to their house for 
drinks and to spend the day on their yachts?  Or that they should be more

(other stars) should be more accesible to fans?

Let's do another song for comparison.  Which of Pete's earlier songs do you 
think are more spiritual and uplifting, as opposed to these later ones?
