Thread Name: American National Anthem
Subject: RE: American National Anthem
THANKYOU, ART FOR THE KOTTKE JOKE. ONCE, WHEN HE WAS SINGING HERE IN NEWPORT,RI AT SALT THEATER (NOW DEFUNCT) HE REFERRED TO HIS OWN VOICE AS SOUNDING LIKE :GOOSE FARTS." SO YOUR JOKE GAVE ME 2 LAUGHS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. AS FOR THE AMERICAN ANTHEM, AS A SONG, I CAN'T FAULT IT. ANTHEMS IN GENERAL, HOWEVER, GIVE ME THE PIP. UNLESS MAYBE WE COULD WRITE A TERRAN ONE. BUT WILL THAT EVER HAPPEN? NO, BY SAGAN, NOT UNTIL WE DISCOVER INTELLIGENT LIFE ELSEWHERE IN THE MULTIVERS AND NEED A SNAPPY TUNE TO KEEP OUR PECKERS UP FOR THE FIRST INTERGALACTIC WAR. RAVE ON.
