There's quite a bit that's better than This Land Is Your Land, but that just happens to be the most well known.

what do you think of james blunt?

I'm just working on a tutorial presentation I have to give tomorrow re: ethnic cleansing and genocide (I'm actually going to do it off the top of my head as I feel I'm just writing down stuff I already know). I must admit, I find myself impressed by a US Senator I was previously unfamiliar with, William Proxmire. According to his Wikipedia article:

From 1967 until 1986, Proxmire gave daily speeches noting the necessity of ratifying The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. After giving this speech every day that the Senate was in session for 20 years, resulting in 3,211 speeches, the convention was ratified by the U.S. Senate by a vote on 83–11 on 11 February 1986.

What a fucking champion.

i read the terms of service, rather skimmed, it seems they've licensed the songs so the artists are getting some money...they also have movies for 1.99. i might start using it for stuff i can't find elsewhere, though the downloader only works for pc's so i'll have to do each song manually.

Actually, I'm familiar with that. She has definitely been mentioned in courses before (both with regards to genocide and humanitarian intervention - not always positively in the case of the latter) and I think but am not 100% sure that a chapter from that book was in one of my course readers last year.

I refuse to believe there is anybody on this planet who actually thinks his music has merit.

Considering that song Beautiful was a #1 hit in this country, apparently those people exist.
