"Jim Terr occupies a unique place in citizen activism. In both his brilliant satire work, and his more serious essays and outreach, he has a peculiar gift for focusing on the people who need to be reached and who might be reached, instead of just “preaching to the converted.” His is a unique and valuable gift of populism and simplicity, perhaps a result of his small-town upbringing.
His work is wise, hard-hitting, unusually effective, and deserves the support of everyone who wishes for a more humane world. Especially in these particularly divisive times, Jim has a gift for bridging the “divide.”
-- Thom Hartmann, radio host and author

Sheila Ortego McLaughlin: In the great traditions of Weird Al and Randy Rainbow, and in honor of the murder of Art in America, Jim Terr, nationally-broadcast satirist is working on a 'tongue firmly in cheek' production of the country album that Donald Trump would do if he came out of the closet as a wanna be country music star...

I’M SO GLAD YOU MET ME

** HOW GREAT YOUR LOVE FOR ME
*** THE ONLY TIME I WAS EVER WRONG
