(Indianapolis Star) This story is American on two levels: It involves patriotism and profit.

Bill Wellman is 88 years old, a proud former Marine, an energetic capitalist and all-around idea man.

His latest business plan: He wants to wire the nation for the playing of taps.

Other cities are known for regular rituals with wide appeal: London has its daily changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace; Key West’s throngs gather seaside each evening to applaud the sunset; in Las Vegas, the fountain at the Bellagio goes off spectacularly every half hour.

But whether playing taps at dusk nightly everywhere in the U.S. is a good idea depends on who’s being asked.
