August Snow-Storm, Way Back (Now?)…

Hey, check out the “August Snow-Storm” link. Interesting sidebar to the famous author of our nation’s anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.” No knock on the venerated Francis Scott Key, per se. His was the prevalent thinking of the time, is all.

I think there’s still a heavy residue of that school of thought, even now. No knock on those who think in such terms, per se. Just the thinking of the time, is all.

And for all my right-handed brethren out there, don’t get all hung up because it’s NPR. Just relax and read — or listen. Don’t be scared.
