Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So is our enthusiasm for heroes and heroic deeds really running down?

Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky wonders if it is. He cites as an example the nation’s somewhat subdued reaction to the government finally solving a way through a potential disaster that would have found us running out of money.

That solution, Sokolsky says, was a noble achievement, not a perfect one, but worthy of some applause. And in days past Tin Pan Alley composers would have already churned out a variety of ballads and patriotic songs.

This time, he points out, the response was good. But wasn’t there a songwriter out there who might have wanted to create a drum roll or two on the White Hous lawn as a tribute to those victors valiant?
