The Baron is away until tomorrow. In place of the news, here is a version of Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man”.
This was the music used during yesterday’s “Restoring the Honor” event in Washington, D.C. As each recipient came up to receive their award, this theme would resound.
The version you see here is from the National Cathedral. In one of his speeches, Glenn Beck reported on his visit to the National Cathedral and how moved he was by its splendid details.
I’ll have a first-hand report tomorrow from one of our readers. They just checked in via email to let us know they survived the heat and the crowds. They estimate larger numbers present than the MSM reported:
…the woods on either side of the reflecting pool were packed with people, the aerial photos do not do justice to the crowd. It is possible that there were significantly over a half million.
Definitely, a Day for the Common Man…and Woman.
