4. Here’s a real national anthem, unofficial though it may be.  I love how Wendy Mathews can belt out a verse.

5. “Baltmores citizens watched in panic throughout the night. . .”

Yes, it’s almost 10 minutes long and the first minute is a bit corny.  But those of you with an attention span higher than that of your average Shas Party member may just find the last 8 minutes of the video to be inspiring.
