Letters to the Editor

Sing the song correctly

I would venture a guess that 50 percent of the people reading this letter watched the Super Bowl on Sunday. It was, I think, a very entertaining game, especially with my Green Bay Packers winning.

But that is not what this letter is about.

The so-called professional singer who sang our Star Spangled Banner completely destroyed it. She looked like a cheap hooker on the corner singing for her supper. No wonder she is so skinny: Who would give her any money for her singing?

Here is an idea: Why not ban all professional singers sing from the song and trying to do their own arrangement and have the wives and families of soldiers, who know and understand what it really means, to sing it. Wouldn't that be refreshing?

Of course, that is just my opinion and I am sticking to it.
