Cultural Diplomacy Hard Power

I'm out in LA prior to my domestic tour with Keola Beamer and co, and staying in Hermosa Beach with my cousins.  Unluckily, I was awakened this morning to the sound of teenage angst reverberating through the floorboards as one of my 15 year-old cousins was blasting her music before heading out to school, and the bass was palpable a floor below.

That offers me the perfect segue to point out the use of Brittany Spears as deterrent against Somali pirates.  Who says cultural diplomacy can't have a hard power side?
