Only in America.
Only in America could religious conservatives get worked up over the Boy Scouts’ decision to admit openly homosexual boys to their ranks.
If we lived in a real (not to say free) country, then we would be reading something like the following exchanges:
Obama administration officials have convenient ways of evading responsibility. Hilary made her getaway before some of the truth about Benghazi began to ooze out from the cracks, and Holder not only has recused himself from the investigation of the AP story but he blames subordinates for all his woes. Best of all, perhaps, is the evader-in-chief who now claims that he always called the Benghazi attack a terrorist incident.
Let me second Tom Piatak. I think the best way to start appreciating Ella is by getting (off iTunes, for example) the various songbooks she recorded–Cole Porter, Gershwin, Rogers and Hart. In these she sings mainly straight without a lot of jazzing around. My wife generally dislikes most jazz (except George Shearing and a few others) but she is always asking me to play the lady with the beautiful voice.
