The 67th annual Tony Awards enjoyed some added star power this year. Tom Hanks, Steven Van Zandt, Cyndi Lauper, Scarlett Johansson, and Jake Gyllenhaal were in attendance, all either returning to or making their Broadway debut in some capacity this past season. The show, hosted again by actor Neil Patrick Harris, saw its highest ratings since 2009.

I kind of went a little crazy earlier over 80’s icon Cyndi Lauper messing up the lyrics to the National Anthem on Sunday at the U.S. Open. Some are saying, “What’s the big deal?”

Messing up our National Anthem is enough of an embarassment. I’m sorry, but not knowing the correct lyrics on the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, during a 9/11 ceremony, in New York, is inexcusable. End of story.
