Digging out from the psychic rubble

Turning to homeland security -- with the accent on home.

Published October 10, 2001 8:00AM (EDT)

Steeped in the rough-and-tumble spoken-word movement, boiled in punk rock, roasted in alcohol, pressure-cooked in American literature and turned like a newel post on the lathe of American journalism, Cary Tennis brings his passionate oratory on arts, politics and culture to Salon every Wednesday.

This week, he's still in a somber, lyric mode -- albeit with a humorous touch -- in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Music: Ryuichi Sakamoto.
