I've listened to WTCOOO the other day. In general the song to me asks two questions:
Do we really take care of our own? and
Do we care to much of our own?
But the beginning of the second verse is not clear to me:
"From Chicago to New Orleans,
from the muscle to the bone
From the shotgun shack to the Superdome"
I think I understand the New Orleans/Superdome part. Bruce asks why it took so long before the people got help after the terrible hurricane Katrina.
But why does he mention Chicago? What happened in this city?
