This was a very interesting read. I too, found I agreed with many of Goldberg's list choices, but more than that, I agreed wholeheartedly with his analysis:
"So, what is it that so many ordinary Americans want? It's actually pretty simple. We want a little more appriciation for the values that most of us - liberals as well as conservatives, Democrats as well as Republicans - used to take for granted: civility, mutual respect, a semblance of decency and yes...a little old fashioned love of country, too.
Is that asking too much?
