Keith Urban Biography - Facts, Birthday, Life Story, http://www.biography.com/people/keith-urban-193217 (last visited Nov. 21, 2011). Based on preliminary research, it does not appear that Mr. Urban has released any songs expressly discussing the concept of Article III standing.And also:
The lyric is from the song “The Waiting,” the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ album Hard Promises, released in 1981. Although now 30 years old, the song is still used in popular culture. It was featured in at least one promotional spot for the fifth season of the television situation comedy “The Office” and is used at Philadelphia Flyers home games (when officials are reviewing a play). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_ Waiting_(song) (last visited 5/16/2011). See also http://www.lyricstime.com/tom-petty-the-waiting-lyrics (last visited 5/16/2011).Oy veh -- next he'll take two paragraphs to explain what "it's better to be safe than sorry" means.
Oh I kid the good judge -- the fact is this will be a fantastic presentation and I'm really looking forward to it.
See you all at lunch!
