Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the NIH, retired this week, and the Department of Health and Human Services did a tribute to him, inviting him on for a sendoff.
He spoke some words about the honor of service and so on – then he whipped out a guitar and sang a song – “Somewhere Past the Pandemic” to the tune of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” famously sung by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz.
