Happy Fourth of July on behalf of myself and I'm sure Kuff as well. This week, my feed reader has been full of calls for impeachment and a general lack of patriotism. I know a lot of us have a difficult time being proud of what's going on in Washington (or Austin, or downtown), but this post by Rick Overton at Huffington Post caught my eye because it offered a slightly different perspective:
I love my little Honda Civic. If out of nowhere a psycho steals my car and rams an outdoor café, killing innocent people, I'll be devastated to have been in any way connected to such a horrible thing. But of the many emotions I will feel, one of them won't be a sudden hatred of my car. Someone evil took it and did harm.
I'm not sure that I really agree with Rick, but it's food for thought while you eat hot dogs and watch fireworks. Have a delightful, safe (and hopefully dry) holiday, everyone!Posted by Alexandria Ragsdale on July 04, 2007 to Skepticism
