    Dang. Got something in my eye.

    If that don’t put a lump in your throat you’re in the wrong country and just need to get the hell out.

    That was a touching advertisement and a prime example of the intersection-gack, that word!-of patriotism and consumerism.
    “This is the postmodern desert inhabited by people who are, in effect, consuming themselves in the form of images and abstractions through which their desires, sense of identity, and memories are replicated and then sold back to them as products.”
    ― Larry McCaffrey
    Wasn’t Jeep purchased by Fiat and produced only in the U.S. until 2014, not that there’s anything wrong with that? I feel a Menckenesque moment coming on.

    I once saw an interview with Ryan Tedder the lead singer of OneRepublic. He came across as a well grounded individual.

    Good for Jeep. I also watched Gladys Knight sing the NA.

    I stand when I hear the anthem, even when it’s on the screen. Why? Because some kid in a dark blue uniform once ran the flag forward in close combat to rally his unit in the Civil War. Because my dad served under that flag when he exchanged direct cannon fire with the Germans in Italy.

    I don’t need anymore reason than that.
