Count your blessings. Used to be, when we were in Salina, for the banquets
we had a color guard come in from the local military school while we played
the Star Spangled Bananas, and then for equal time the three Canadian
entrants would come to the dais and do O Canada a capella.
In Topeka, we seem to have eliminated that from the program.
