Another first...

Billmon comes back just in time for me to disagree with him:
I've never liked our national anthem much. I usually wince every time I have to listen to it, and if I'm listening to it on TV I always fumble for the mute button. I've often said that if I were dictator (which, as Shrub has noted, makes things easier) my first decree would be to change it to This Land is Your Land, and let the bombs burst and the rockets glare in some other country.
I'm not wild about "The Star Spangles Banner" either, but left to me we'd all be singing "America, the Beautiful" before baseball games.
