Letter to the editor- Stop messing up national anthem

To the editor:

I am tired of hearing people who pretend to ‘sing’ the “Star Spangled Banner” on television growl, moan, warble, or screech it or croon unwritten and unintended variations. I’m all for improvisation in music, but not with our national anthem. I wish each of them would get the sheet music and read how Frances Scott Key wrote it. Does anyone else feel this way?
