What's more disturbing; the fact that German-lead Jeep is the lead sponsor of the "National Anthem Project: Restoring America's Voice" or that only 39 percent of Americans know all the words to the national anthem? We'd say the latter by a landslide. Haven't we watched enough sports and spent time in school learning the "Star-Spangled Banner" that more than 39 percent of people would know it? We've got enough hockey games under our belt (at least before this year) that recitation of "O Canada!" would almost come naturally too. Dieter Zetsche will kick off the ceremony in Washington, D.C. with a speech about being a European who admires the American strength and democracy. Schools are blaming budget cuts, where music programs are usually the first to go, for the loss of lyrics. Maybe this time we can say Americans aren't watching enough TV!
