'Sweet Home Alabama' shocks Brooklyn shoppers

“I suppose there had been music playing in the store, but I hadn’t noticed until a familiar guitar lick pierced the air and a soft voice said, ‘Turn it up.’

“… By the time Ronnie Van Zant’s drawl started in with ‘Big wheels keep on turnin’,’ everyone in the store was standing in shock. Brows were furrowed, people mumbled to each other. The song seemed to get louder as one of those New York moments happened, when everyone was thinking the exact the same thing.

“A woman in her fifties, wearing a Love Trump Hates button, turned to her Brooklyn-bearded husband and said loudly, ‘This is unbelievable!’ She found the nearest store clerk, a young woman in a green apron who was staring up at the ceiling, looking for the invisible speakers blaring this message from the other America. ‘This is so inappropriate,’ the woman said. ‘Can we turn this off?’”

(It’s easy to kick back, read stuff, and say, “Yeah, you people voted for Lefty Hillary, believed she was the Second Coming of Obama, maybe Husband Bill, whose portraits float above the Encyclopedia of Progressivism, thinking there would be a centerfold photo of The Great Progressive Prophets – Bill & Hillary, Barry & Michelle, with 8X10 color photographs of former President Kennedy and The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the paneled walls. And now you have met defeat, maybe even learned the way us Flyovers got educated in the School of Everyday Life, that Reality Sucks. Well, live with it.”)
