This Dec. 6, 2013, Duluth was treading snow, climbing out of more than 2 feet that had fallen in the past few days. The slinky lines of traffic inched their way to the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center for Friday night activities, including a UMD home hockey game and a Harbor Holiday Special performance by the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra.
I was saddened by the letter complaining that the playing and singing of the national anthem at a symphony performance was a “jarring innovation” (Readers’ Views: “National anthem a jarring intrusion at symphony,” Oct. 16).
