Thanks But No Thanks

November 25, 2004

How much insanity can you pack into a single paragraph? I think Thomas Friedman is a strong contender for the prize with this gem from a New York Times op-ed today (thanks to Sheldon Richman for the link):

I want to take time on this Thanksgiving to thank God I live in a country where, despite so much rampant selfishness, the public schools still manage to produce young men and women ready to voluntarily risk their lives in places like Iraq and Afghanistan to spread the opportunity of freedom and to protect my own. And I want to thank them for doing this, even though on so many days in so many ways we really don't deserve them.

Words fail me.
