Watching the inauguration of President Barack Obama filled me with enthusiasm for the next four years. My only disappointment was the singers chosen to sing our patriotic songs ("History revisited," Jan. 22).
Why do these young singers have to spoil our beautiful patriotic songs by putting on their own interpretation, dragging the songs out, hitting off-key notes and screeching?
This is not music. They should be required to listen to recordings of Kate Smith singing "God Bless America."
