I get it. We live in a very reactionary society. Everyone is looking to judge. Everyone is looking to be offended. Everyone wants someone to lose a job "because they knew or should have known" something. Group think develops very quickly.

I didn't watch the NBA All Star Game last night but woke up this morning to the media frenzy over Fergie's rendition of the National Anthem. So I looked it up. Fearing the worst. Political statement, forgotten words, or whatever.

Am I missing something? Yeah, it was different. I've seen a lot worse. I didn't think it was disrespectful. In the end I wish people would just sing the song as it was written. But was this that bad?
