Washington has no shortage of events featuring dignitaries, pomp and worshipful speeches, but few such events could rival the heartfelt adoration on display yesterday at the kickoff of an exhibit honoring the 50th anniversary of the Muppets at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.


More from the only newspaper to have a John Philip Sousa march named after it.

I had to look it up to find out which march it is. Here's the wikipedia article. I always think of this as the football march. I don't know whether it's played at (American) football games more than any other march, but the wikipedia article says it was the march that was played in the football game in the movie M*A*S*H, so maybe that's where I got the idea.
