Louis, Really well put [“Page Two,” Nov. 25]. I've said to several friends of mine that being an American, since the invasion of Iraq, is like being with a drunk at a party who then starts fighting with everybody. Now the problem is how to get out of the bar. You marshaled your points brilliantly and far from being just a rant, you proffer serious analysis of an absurd yet terrifying situation. Thanks for articulating what so many of us are feeling – all patriotic, if Democratic or (gasp) liberal Americans – who believe in real freedom and real acceptance of each other's beliefs, morals, and lifestyles – and putting it into words that, unlike the horrendous situation we're now in – make sense. No one is arguing that fighting, say, Nazi Germany was the right thing to do, but they invaded Poland. Happy T'giving and thanks to all at the Chron.
