The most shocking thing about this report is not that Iran's president has banned Western music, but that Iranian radio stations had been playing mostly George Michael, The Eagles, and Kenny G.

In a way, it's sort of a good move.

He certainly had a pretty easy case to make to the people.

Now if the radio had been playing something as kickass as Rush's "Tom Sawyer" you'd have seen more than a few university students protesting in the streets.

"Today's Tom Sawyer (reform movement)
He gets high on you (Iran's freedom)
And the space he invades (a democratic Iraq)
He sniffs like glue." (the horsemeat most people are eating)

Yeah, Canada prog rock bringing the Western Domino Effect!

I was actually worried about the danger from Iran, until I found out they're threatened by Kenny G.

We need to start air-dropping Kenny G CDs on Iranian military facilities post-haste. This may mean we'll have to seize every last one from the radio stations, homes, and shopping mall PA systems across the fruited plain in order to have enough. But I think America is ready for the sacrifice.

Naturally, some milksops will complain that this violates the laws of war. The hell with them.

Why waste time just air-dropping Kenny G's CDs, when we could send the real thing?
