    Watched the Courtney Stoddard vid, and saw a young lady who, if she only had several years of hard work, strict coaching, and some actual talent, could one day aspire to be a lounge singer.

    I haven’t seen talent like that since Champagne Dream.

    It could be worse. America needs more lounge singers and fewer humanities majors.

    Well, hey, Disney is controlled by Limousine Lefties, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they were put there or Pfeifen, während Sie arbeiten / Arbeit macht frei [Whistle While You Work / Work Will Set You Free].
