Heh. 1:12 in the Paul Simon video: "Let us all rally behind our authentic and consistent leader Cde R.G. Mugabe"

How's that's working out for you, Zimbabwe?

If you click through the other videos that are related after Jonathan's is finished, you see all kinds of reactions to hearing sound for the first time. They are usually startled and crying.

I remember seeing a piece on sixty minutes (or something along that line) speaking out against cochlear implants because it was akin to discrimination as it implied there was something wrong with deaf people. Jewel's comments reminded me of the silliness of the "we're all winners" crowd.

Thank you for posting this... it's indescribably beautiful. And so cool to also hear one of my all-time favorite songs, too!
