I hadn't heard about this, and I think it's awful. My opinion of Jennifer just went down. It's stupid for a tennis player to use something that could be interpreted as so politically charged (although the song was actually comparing 'half-hearted" US bombing raids to the half-measure works of some musicians) in such a tense period. I personally find the Iraq war stupid, abhorrent, and badly planned to boot. War is one of the most morally disgusting things in the world, and very much against my own religion and personal beliefs. It is a bit ironic how the Americans went in without UN approval, and when it turns out fixing Iraq is a lot harder than breaking it, they want the UN to save their butts. George W. Bush is a contemptible human being.

Roddick was never known as a philosopher, but I would think he would listen to the entire song, not just the chorus! Maybe player theme music is a silly idea anyway. I don't know. Seems a little too WWE to me. But everyone has different taste.
Volcana, of course there are heartless assholes in the world, but most of us aren't like that. As a species, we have the capacity to be compassionate or heartless. Some may make the wrong choice, but that doesn't mean everyone's like that.
