Susan Boyle in Coming to America

I'm sure most of you have seen this, but I don't watch any of the reality programs, including and especially the "Star Search" variety like Idol or America's Got Talent. But it was on the latter program that Susan Boyle, she of the "I Dreamed a Dream" who captivated us earlier this year, made her American debut. And as cheesy as it sounds, I love a good underdog story. I admire this woman's courage and dedication, and obviously it has paid off for her. So here she is, doing a remarkable cover of The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses".

You Must Watch this Video

I apologize for the two-week absence: I've been sick as hell, really. I only started feeling better in the last couple of days.

Which is oddly appropriate for an introduction for this video, which appeared in my GMail inbox today. It is a song about why we don't need no helth cur here in Amurca. It's called "We're #37" because that's where America ranks among all the nations of the world in quality of health care.

But it's funny, and it rocks (sort of), so give it a watch.
