Thanks for this. I see your point, too. The time may change, but the way people deal with things in various ways ... generally doesn't change too much. In this case, perhaps love of country, vs strong disagreement on how it should be expressed, ironically resulting in us fighting ourselves. Jeez, I haven't seen that anywhere lately . I guess, like now, there were two sides to every story. But yeah, the spitting strikes me (then and now) as simple hateful ignorance, not thoughtful protest. I don't have anything more to say here. I sincerely hope this is viewed as productive, and on topic as far as the Anthem performance, but it certainly is veering toward the edge, and I wouldn't want to shut our great thread down. If mods prefer to remove this, please, by all means.
