Since when does “patriotism” mean willful ignorance?
Standing before — or rather, below — Bennett Hill, one might think our flag is nothing more than an expression of denial.
However, a political tidal wave also landed — as if for Thanksgiving — reasserting patriotism as E pluribus unum, the idea that we are all in this together.
If you doubt that, I know of a couple oceanfront cottages you can buy at steep discounts.
