Americans are very cool people

Posted by wendyn on 10/30/01 at 22:47 (063859)

Just so you know.

I think that Bush is a very cool guy with a lot of guts (I was going to say B***s but I'm trying not to offend anyone today). The threat of terrorist attack did not keep you folks from enjoying the world series this evening. If i was Bush I would have been hiding under my bed. But I am a big chicken and not likely to ever run for President.

I also think that the police officer (?) who sang God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch is amazing. Gave me the chills.

Just thought I'd pass that on.

Wendy --- How did you like his pitch.....I mean, right above the plate, nearly perfect. (I was impressed until I learned later that he pitched in college.)

I liked the hugh tatered flag that the NYFD brough to the game. It was the only American flag salvaged from the WTC. The firefghters have been bringing it to other events, like burials of their former co-workers. It's about time we see some patriotism in his country. Too bad we had to loose over 5,000 people in the process.

Barb, darling.... are you still afflicted with the dreaded 'DC flu'? I really do think it's time you seek medical attention, or else plunk yourself down in front of The West Wing and find a replacement (cheaper than a visit to the doctor, and much more entertaining--with the possible exception of Dr. Z's Winnebago!). If MS doesn't work for you, there are plenty of other suitable candidates to choose from between 9 and 10 on a Wednesday night!!

I was impressed with the flag as well when I heard the commentator explain that it had flown over the World Trade Center. I, too, feel we are long overdue in showing respect and patriotism for our country. It is unfortunate that often something must be lost before people realize how much it means to them.

Wendy: I never think of you in terms of being a Canadian or American but just as 'one of us with foot problems'!
