    Great post, Steve. The message, unlike the Nationwide ad on the Super Bowl, seemed totally in context and forcefully delivered as well as received.

    Yes, I was thinking about the very thing as I watched it. Context is obviously very important though the two issues were not that dissimilar. It’s interesting how music seems to work well as a platform for serious issues though at its core is entertainment based. Sporting events don’t seem to handle serious issues as well though there are examples of where it has. 9/11 comes to mind. Perhaps timing is the most important subset of context that really matters.
