Right-Wing Kid

Jonah: During the recent NBA championships, featuring the victorious Detroit Pistons and the decimated Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit native Kid Rock sang “America the Beautiful” before one of the games in Auburn Hills, Mich. Reagan had just died–and Kid Rock dedicated his song to the former president, as well as to the troops and Ray Charles. A very nice touch, and totally sincere.
