Today is a very memorable day for me personally, and undoubtedly, for many Sploofus members here.
The title of this thread is taken from a song recorded in 1968 by a Detroit disc jockey- Tom Clay.
Please listen closely to the beginning and ending segment when Mr. Clay interviews young children and asks them for a adult word definition.

"What the World Needs Now"- with this poignant music melody bed behind the narrative, please watch the video of the "Abraham, Martin and John'-- an inspired tribute to three [actually four] slain leaders in our history.

If you've never heard this song before, it will make you think and reflect about November 22, 1963.

A prayer goes out to Theodore Kennedy from me.
"Some men see things as they are- and say why?- I dream things that never were- and say why not?"

I hope Obama gets to see this Al. The one thing he does that the three fallen leaders did was get too close to the public, especially JFK. They drove security nuts.
