In which I quote

“This issue is not them — this issue is about us,” he {John McCain} said of terrorists, facing an audience sipping cocktails on a lush lawn next to a pool. “The United States has always been better than our enemies. I’ll tell you right now: one of the things in prison, in North Vietnam, that kept us strong was that we knew we were not like our enemies. That we came from a better nation, with better values, with better standards.”

I drove down to Tucson today to visit my father's grave. I didn't bring flowers. I'll have to the next time; and visit more often. It's oddly ironic that his nearest "neighbors" are the Rodriguezes (my dad, a product of his time and place, was more than a little bit racist).
