Back in 1990, Dennis Leary released a record entitled No Cure for Cancer. Some 16 years later, President of the United States Barack Obama announced a new effort to prove the actor and comedian wrong and cure cancer in his very last State of the Union Address – and perhaps prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that Leary did plagiarize Bill Hicks’s act. “We will smoke cancer out of its hole. We’ll get it running, and we’ll bring it to justice,” is what George W. Bush might have said, but was even Dubya smart enough not to make such a bold announcement? Unless he did, which I’m not ready to swear on a bible that he didn’t. President Obama called the effort a “moonshot;” methinks he may have been on the moonshine himself. And even if they did find the cure for cancer, it’s already too late; we have already lost David Bowie.
