In My Steamer Trunk

[In my opinion] The news has been so boring, mundane, monotonous as of late. Every headline I see reads, "Obama..." "Clinton Slipping" "Steriods" "Iraq" "Housing Slump" "Recession." Blah Blah Blah. Every day the news is regurgitated from the day and week before. Only new people are being quoted and new charts to show the same old dips in NASDAQ.

However, in the midst of all of this there are little news gems like this one. The New York Philharmonic was honored to perform in North Korea, a monumental statement in the diplomacy between our two nations. The story outlines how the Philharmonic played a traditional Korean folk song and impressed attendees with a stunning rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner."

There's nothing dramatic about this story, but is extremely exciting to read when recent headlines across the world have been as dreary as the rain in Nashville today.
