The Great Apple War of 2008 turned out to be much shorter and more victorious than I expected.

Dear Lindsay,

You're a loyal customer and because of this, we want to give you the opportunity to redownload (at no charge) "Because of the Times".

Please note that you may download your purchases only once, so this is an exception.

Thanks for being a valued member of the Apple Family. Have a wonderful day Lindsay and take care!

Warmest regards,

Susan
iTunes Store Customer Support

Wow. That was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.

They met our demands, America! The people spoke and Apple could do naught but listen! We've taken back America from the chokehold of the corporations! I couldn't have done this without you.

I read this entry before your last one so I mistakenly thought that iTunes was being snarky and gave you the opportunity to redownload because of the times. As in, "hey, we understand that our country is currently facing an economic downturn, so we'll let your redownload 'because of the times.'"

But the true story is just as good.
