A Poster Girl on The Wrong Side of The World


As an American I've always felt a kinship with Australians and New Zealanders because of our common Anglo-Saxon foundations (settlers, language, legal system, and so forth); so I especially enjoyed this music video by Beccy Cole, an Australian recording star. Interestingly, the video topped the Australian charts. Note the intelligent, frank and matter-of-fact tone of her song, as opposed to the adolescent breast-beating we get so often from American pop stars with something political to say.

Is there an American counterpart to Ms. Cole? Do we have any anti-Dixie Chicks?

Thanks, Hedgehog! Great find . . . . great lady. With John Howard , their PM who gets it and is willing to articulate it, and Beccy Cole, the Aussies are a bit up on us right now, I'm afraid.

Bonzer, as the Aussies say. Well posted, Brother Hedgehog. Dennis Prager said yesterday that as one gets older, one no longer cries so much at sad events as when one sees good in the world, which is probably why I had to reach for a box of tissues when I heard Poster Girl.
