Just wondering if people who are regular visitors to this site could let me know who they are in the comments. That way maybe I can put some links to your sites here. Would be nice. Jimmy Eat World's Praise Chorus is so terribly stuck in my head! Can't get it out. At least it replaced Foo Fighters' Generator, which was already driving me crazy. Yup, so let me know who you are, ok? Thanks.
"The highest possible form of treason," said Minton, " is to say that Americans aren't loved wherever they go, whatever they do. People are hated a lot of places. Claire pointed out in her letter that Americans, in being hated, were simply paying the normal penalty for being people, and that they were foolish to think they should somehow be exempted from that penalty."
"Well, I'm glad the story had a happy ending."
"Hm?" said Minton.
"It finally came out all right," I said. "Here you are on your way to an embassy all your own."
Minton and his wife exchanged another of those pitying glances. Then Minton said to me, "Yes. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is ours."
