"Jack Binns" played by Jeff Barnhart

Much to his shock and dismay, Jack Binns became an overnight hero for his role in the "Republic"/"Florida" rescue, gaining the moniker, "CQD Binns." "I only did what I should have done and what every other fellow would have done under the same circumstances." Others, he believed, deserved more credit than he. Still, celebrity could not be avoided. He was made the subject of a short film, as well as the subject of this tune. (To hear "Jack Binns," you need the RealPlayer plugin.)
