Q Sees No Evil

Quincy Jones, one-time jazz big band leader, multi-genre producer, film scorer and Democratic Party contributor has been “seduced by China on his first visit,” according to Reuters. “The inspiration of the strong leadership in preparing the 2008 Olympic Games and the theme ‘One world, One dream’ has led me to offer everything I can possibly bring . . . to this fantastic event,” Jones said.

I suppose you could say the Chinese government is known for strong leadership. Iron-fisted the Tibetans might even say. Tiananmen Square is probably quite charming without all those protestors cluttering up. Evidently, Q was also dazzled by “the beautiful women—some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, whoah,” but didn’t see anything amiss on the human right front.
