  1. I love that John Denver bit. You can’t get much farther from the ocean than Aspen Colorado, and yet Jacques Cousteau moved him to care about the ocean that deeply..

  2. I agree about the John Denver bit. I get all choked up every time I hear that song. It is even better with the video. Susan Boyle would never elicit that kind of response from me. I love all the stuff you could get away with pre-MMPA.
