Introducing yesterday’s rendering (word chosen with care) of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, the booth announcer said that it was to be, in part, a tribute to New Orleans. Hasn’t that unfortunate city suffered enough? Granted, “The Star Spangled Banner” is a miserable piece of music and our national anthem should be “God Bless America,” but Francis Scott Keys’ song did not deserve the trashing it received from Aaron Neville, Aretha Franklin and Dr. John. By comparison, the Seahawks got off lightly. Not only was the treatment a bad idea, but it was a bad idea poorly executed. The Rolling Stones might have done it better. Shame on everyone involved.
