FOR ALL WHO SERVED

Giving thanks this Memorial Day to my father-in-law, grandfathers, uncles (who thank god all made it home from the wars they fought) and to all the other men and women who served our country so that we can live this American life of backyard barbecues and feisty conversations; girls who run free in short-shorts, hair uncovered; libraries filled with books, that nobody can tell me I cannot read; and a democracy that though complicated and contentious is still the best one there's ever been.

"Use the good china for breakfast."
