Just how many majesties can a purple mountain need? <g>  As this era
gears up I suspect blown patriotic lyrics will be less of a problem,
for more reasons than one.

Here's one for you - is there any protocol that would discourage the
use of the National Anthem voiced-over?  One thing I noticed was it
used as a bumper then faded to a spot break.  Something seemed odd
about that.
