He probably told the Kennedy story because it sounded more interesting than because he needed a three syllable name.

The truth is, a lot of songs get written that way. Merely the practical need to fit a word into a space that either rhymes or has the correct number of syllables.

Takes some of the panache away.

In 2007 Diamond performed the song via satellite at Caroline Kennedy's 50th birthday party, and said that the song was about her. He told the Associated Press: "I've never discussed it with anybody before - intentionally. I thought maybe I would tell it to Caroline when I met her someday. I'm happy to have gotten it off my chest and to have expressed it to Caroline. I thought she might be embarrassed, but she seemed to be struck by it and really, really happy."

Am so glad to hear someone else post about this ad. I want to punch that stupid Ginger-bread boy straight in the face. And has anyone noticed the proliferation of gingers (pasty, white redheads) in ads? The adtards pandering to white America? People of color should not buy any product with these Vitamin-D deficient "actors". They are basically telling you that their product is not for you. It's the same with the Progressive ads, with the blindingly white backdrops and not one person of color that seems to work in their made up "stores". Just think how much a black person would stand out there. Just another way of telling people of color that this "product is not for them. They're so out of touch and don't realize that white people are slowly but surely dropping out of being the majority in this country.

Pretty tame response there, dude.

Let's just say I'm a little disappointed.

I just don't get riled up much anymore.  I'm more amused than outraged these days by the stuff that's going on out there.
 
Recently, I was amused by the Catholic school in California that removed their religious statues so as not to alienate their non-Catholic students.  You can't make this stuff up.  LOL

It's just another in a long line of phases we're going through as society grows up.

Growing pains, as it were.

Or maybe your hands are too calloused and rough.

Could also be that the grit number of the sand paper you're using isn't high enough.

The guy is horrendous.I could see him inspiring road rage incidents. I can deal with the woman humoring him.
Not only was the song overplayed even before this ad and the link to the Red Sox is old, tired and ridiculous (and I live in Mass.). Also it's not the original version. The whole annoying "so good, so good" thing was added later.

I hate the god awful actors in this commercial. That guy's overacting is worse then Will Shatner x 1 million. And I bet that girl is the kind of annoying aspiring actor that thinks every conversation, with everyone, everywhere is an audition/opportunity to show how "talented" they are. And so they turn everything into a performance, like paying for their groceries.

Hey, that was an episode of Quantum Leap!

Disapprove I feeeeeeel yer pain, bro.
If the 'people of color' (from the class you speak of) were to purchase such products, the government might make them explain where they got the money as 'whoring', 'drug dealing', and 'selling my foodstamps' (not to be confused with selling your children) are *not* acceptable answers.
All the 'Gingers' get the money spots, while most of the rest are sitting on 'death row' where they put themselves since they don't know how to behave in a civilized society.
In other words, if you are a disgrace to your race, then you're already in your place while so many others from all corners of this earth are fine upstanding citizens who don't even pay attention, much less have the time to 'point & whine'.
