Singing in Times Square

The little video below, on the NYT website today, brought me to tears – the rabid anti-Islamist Terry something or other attempted to hurl his invective at the good folks in Times Square – and the response. Hooray for America, for kind, thoughtful Americans, and – of course – for the magic band who made the music that they sing.

    It's all you need, Chris. They said so.
