Since I gave Mike Gravel yesterday's thoughts on Independence day, I thought today I would share a message from Ralph Nader about Independence day. ...
One day when I was about eight years old, my mother tossed one of her frequent "out of the blue" questions at me:
"Ralph, do you love your country?"
"Yes, mother," I said, wondering where she was going with this.
"Well, I hope when you grow up, you'll work hard to make it more lovable."
