Yankee Stadium became the new Easter Garden as Kate Smith rose from the dead to sing God Bless America in honor of the poor souls who have been sent to their death by chicken hawks Bush, Cheney et al.
"Imagine the 50,000 plus liberal New York crowd, night after night being subjected to the futile glorification of a war the great majority of Americans have long ago abandoned", conjured a NYK'er who unlike Yankee management knew his fellow Big Applers.
Kate Smith the Latest Risen One aware of her New Life continued singing her interminable repertoire of bar room ballad and tinny pan alley songs. She sang so, so long that the moon really did come over the mountain somewhere around 2AM.
The empty stadium honored America's war, the senseless death of thousands and drew applause from the cleaning crew.
