Pearl Jam hates Dubya. And in case people doubt it, they make their distaste amply clear through lyrics like “George Bush leave this world alone” and “George Bush find yourself another home.” Problem is, nobody heard them—those lyrics were edited out. This happened during a cybercast of a Pearl Jam concert hosted on an AT&T Web site. The company later apologized in pleading tones; they said a subcontractor was responsible for what had happened. Come on out, conspiracy theorists and free speech advocates—tell  us about what politics went into this. We can’t figure.
