Whoever was inspireds to pick Stephen Foster's "Hard Times" to be the tune played by the NYPD pipe band at this morning's tribute to the Sept 11th victims. is a bloody genius.

"Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,
'Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh! Hard times come again no more.
