John-Douglas, nassau

Woof, woof!

" Hope and Change" comes to mind as well as "Yes We Can." The real danger to this country is the brain dead idiots that bought into those slogans.

So true -- will Americans ever smarten up?

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

A frailtly common to Man, on which nationality has no bearing, ultimately, that had its genesis in the Garden.

E Archer, NYC

A Puritanical streak is still strong in America -- the promise of a better day has been the appeal of the left and the right, never ceasing their preaching.

If the techniques used by Madison Avenue to put McDonald's jingles into our heads were instead used to instill a sense of wholeness and responsibility (do we not hunger for that as well?), can you imagine the fruits? Most every child knows the words to commercials without ever attending a class or reading a book. What are they really learning throughout their day to day?
