Happy Fourth of July! I just watched a Capital Fourth on PBS which featured my favorite hollywood composer, John Williams, and yet another medley of his famous works. Mr. Williams doesn't conduct too much anymore, so they made the excuse of giving him a big glass bowl to get him back on stage for five minutes. Dolly Parton was another crowd pleaser, not only naming her breasts (shock and awe) on Public TV, but swearing in her cute folksy drawl, bless her heart. She readily admitted to losing her voice, but soldiered on despite her rasp, and for that alone I admire her. The fireworks were great as usual.
