My brother is a journalist who writes for Government Executive magazine, a subsidiary of The Atlantic.
He just sent along (and tweeted about) this article from GovExec about Mission Statement.

So, Neil Young has officially ruled out any CSNY reunion, which makes room for Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Yankovic!!!

Decent song. Nothing spectacular about it. The music video is pretty cool, though.

I like the melody. Lyrically/content speaking, it's not one of my favorites necessarily. Love the Crosby Stills and Nash homage with the doodoodoos. :D
