The U S of A. Even the Haters call it Home.

July 3, 2008

My brother, Daniel lives and works in China, at a marketing services agency called DMG.  He cannot receive this blog (and countless other pieces of information) because of the communist regime overlording the country. I’m going to reflect on that this 4th of July. I would hope all of us do: the haters, the lovers, the scandalous, the pious, the good, the bad and the very, very ugly. Despite its battered reputation, and myriad problems, this country let’s us do our thing. And that is cause for celebration. Happy Birthday, America!

My next ripe post will be on Monday. For now, it’s fishing and firworks up north in Wisconsin.

God bless.

    Yes, we are lucky in that we are more in control of our own destinies than many countries. More freedoms and more responsibilities, especially these days in a media context.

    Anecdotally, I just did a little work DMG, and my friend from agency days (an AE, oddly enough) works for them. I wonder if they’re very big or the world is, as they say, small. Maybe both.

    Hope you snag a lunker. I’ve had good luck (for me) with the Rapalla lures.

    Friend-
    I’m posting the bass I caught on next entry. A lunker by standards of my waterski lake. I’ll ask bro in China about you. Thanks for reading/writing.

    Speaking of the freedoms we enjoy and the lack of such freedoms in other societies, Iran is willing to kill wayward bloggers.
