RUMSFELD COULDN'T ORGANIZE A SUCCESSFUL WAR, MAYBE HE'LL DO BETTER AT A PARADE

Nothing Honors the Dead like an Old-Fashioned Hoedown

When one thinks of the great showmen and impresarios who have brought to world so much culture and entertainment, certain names step to the fore.

Diaghilev. P.T. Barnum. Billy Rose. Mike Todd. Sol Hurok. Ed Sullivan.

Now add another name to that illustrious roster.

Secretary of Defense and future host of the Grand Ol' Opry, Donald Rumsfeld.

"PENTAGON TO HOST
9/11 MARCH, SHOW

BY MICHAEL McAULIFF
DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon will hold a massive march and country music concert to mark the fourth anniversary of 9/11, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in an unusual announcement tucked into an Iraq war briefing yesterday.

"'This year the Department of Defense will initiate an America Supports You Freedom Walk,' Rumsfeld said, adding that the march would remind people of 'the sacrifices of this generation and of each previous generation.'

"The march will start at the Pentagon, where nearly 200 people died on 9/11, and end at the National Mall with a show by country star Clint Black."

Rumsfeld was disappointed that famed documentarian Leni Riefensthahl will be unable to film the event for posterity because, well, she's dead. But he's pleased as punch ("you bet!") that he'll be able to duet with Clint Black as they perform Rumsfeld's original honkytonk composition "It Takes Big Feet to Fill Big Boots (and I'm in the High Teens, Baby)."
