We always have an unusual rendition of the STAR SPANGLED BANNER to start your day off right. Today we have only one verse, sung without accompaniment by an aging Marine Corps Veteran. But you have probably never heard this verse before, its the final verse, as written by Francis Scott Key. I remember hearing it when I was very young in the early 1950s hardly anyone seems to have noticed that it has been dropped from all public event renditions of the National Anthem. If you are an atheist you'll probably find it deeply offensive. Clearly, in the last 50 years someone has "scrubbed" history. Click here if you dare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0fQd858cRc
