Running on Empty

Don't run with or on Jackson Browne is the message Mr. Browne has for Presidential candidate John McCain. The singer has sued Senator McCain, the Republican National Committee, and the Ohio Republican Committee over their use of his song "Running on Empty" in a campaign ad, saying that viewers might think Mr. Browne endorses Senator McCain for President, and that such an endorsement runs contrary to his traditional views. Apparently the ad has now been pulled, based on the Browne complaint. Read more here in an AP story, here in a BBC story, and here in a Los Angeles Times blogpost.
