    How does this explain why NBC did not carry the part of the ceremony in question?

    Perhaps it was not meant to 'make sense', any more than the murder of 52 innocent people and the maiming of another 700 did not make sense, on the day after the UK won its Olympic bid in 2005. Much easier to sweep it under the carpet and pretend it did not happen.

    I had to go back and be reminded about 7/7. I take it that it was the bombing of the subway and that is why all the dust in the air. And the dancing was to present the turmoil and panic. But the dancing was a distraction for me. It didnt feel a moment of solemnity and sorrow, reflection and rememberance. I would have preferred the song over the montage of photos of the victims.

    NBC sucks, not as much as Fox News, because Fox News pretends to be Fair AND balanced. NBC just sucks. They pretend to be, well, a network that matters.
