<<I'm always shocked that others find it meaningful and moving--the memory of Ethyl Merman debuting it under contrived circumstances, old glory blazing in the background, belting it out like another Broadway showtune is just too putrid for me to get over it. But I suppose it shouldn't be surprising for me to find myself in a small minority on this one too.>>It does little for me either. Neither does the National Day of Prayer. In fact, personally, I find it quite off-putting.But I'm in a distinct minority on that one and this is the sort of time when I have to understand that and respect that. Most people derive comfort from this sort of thing and I'm glad they have it to make them feel better.-chris
