Poor Irving Berlin. “God Bless America” isn’t his best work, but it’s been made to bear the brunt, now, of the boorish, thuggish conformity of the New York Yankees whom, despite the name, are in a lot of ways the antithesis of American ideals. And to have the NYPD enforce listening to his empty demonstration of empty patriotism? It’s the non-conformists like me who should be angry and paranoid, not fools like this.
