    Hamilton, an improbable hip-hop musical about Americas first
    Treasury secretary, completed its rapturous march across Americas
    awards landscape on Sunday, picking up Broadways highest honor: the
    Tony Award for best new musical, the New York Times reports.

    Congratulations to author and star Lin-Manuel Miranda. But this is
    ridiculous:

    The Tony Awards, as well as CBS, which broadcast the event,
    dedicated the ceremony to those affected by the [Orlando
    attack]. . . . Between the time of a morning rehearsal and
    the evening broadcast, Hamilton decided to drop the use
    of muskets in its production number (Yorktown).

    Infantilizing the infantry is a strange way of demonstrating respect
    for the dead.

    I'm surprised that Hamilton even had guns initially, with all the anti-gun types in the industry.

    I didn't watch the entire show, but I did see the beginning comments about Orlando.

    Those comments were just a bit offensive, as the implication was that the tragedy would have been much less noteworthy if it had been at a straight
    club.

    I'd figure they'd want to ENCOURAGE the use of muskets. Hmmmmm.

    Saw just a bit of the TONY show. Looked like TONY was getting back at OSCAR
    by essentially having a BETony award.
