For no specific reason, here’s Lenny Kravitz in an apparently spontaneous appearance with the Voice of Praise Choir from the First Baptist Church of Lewisville, Texas, performing “Fly Away” at the bandshell at Jackson Square in New Orleans.

    Apparently Kravitz travels with his own cameraman for just such spontaneous events;>

    Is the fever beginning to break? Amazing exchange on FTN in which someone speaks the truth:

    MCCHRYSTAL: In the near term, it's clearly our economic challenges. Our inability to make tough decisions to move our economy forward, that worries me in the near term. In the long term it's our education because that is the future.

    SCHIEFFER: Not terrorism, education.

    MCCHRYSTAL: We can handle terrorism. We can handle a nuclear-armed Iran. We can't handle a future where young Americans are not educated enough to take our country forward.

    Lenny Kravitz is a hot god. And if that cameraman is a professional, I'm a monkey's uncle. That had all the hallmarks of a tourist.
