What is Patriotism but love of the good things we ate in our childhood? I have said elsewhere that the loyalty to Uncle Sam is the loyalty to doughnuts and ham and sweet potatoes and the loyalty to the German Vaterland is the loyalty to Pfannkuchen and Christmas Stollen.

America now is stumbling through the darkness of hatred and divisiveness.

Tell people that war is an evil, and they will laugh; for who does not know it? Tell them that Patriotism is an evil, and most of them will agree, but with a reservation.
