Shawn Colvin and Alison Krauss: "The Boxer" (a Simon & Garfunkel cover)
Here's a really great cover of a really great song by a couple of really great singers/musicians:
But it can't quite match this:
The Washington Post editorial board said Friday it will stop using the word “Redskins” when referring to Washington’s football team, joining a growing list of other commentators who have renounced the term because they believe it disparages Native Americans.
In a statement, the board said, “While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect.”
The editorial board is separate from the news-gathering side of the organization, which executive editor Marty Baron said will continue to use the team’s moniker.
Insisting repeatedly that he has no intention of making another bid for the White House, Romney spoke candidly about the man who defeated him two years ago, saying President Obama was doing “a good deal worse than even I expected.” As examples, he mentioned the still-struggling U.S. economy and troubles overseas in such hot spots as Iraq, Syria and Russia. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” Romney said, “but the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.”
I think SNL is egotistical if they believe that it was truly an effect on maybe the public debate about who should lead the country in the next four years.
I know that they portrayed me as an idiot, and I hated that, and I wanted to come on the show and counter some of that.
