I don't think it's too hippie to want to clean up the planet so you don't wind up dying of some kind of cancer when you're 45 years old. It enrages me that these big cancer-research organizations can't be bothered to man the front lines of environmental protest.

Van Morrison is probably, at this point in time, my biggest influence as a vocalist.

Theodore C. Sorensen
