    really no such thing as American Exceptionalism, jellin.  I can't pinpoint when the nation went nuts.  My parents helped win WWII and returned to build a nation that was envied by most others.  Observers in other countries now think we've become weird and off balance.  A daily reading of any metropolitan newspaper would certainly confirm this.  Here in the Detroit area gun deaths are daily fare, and sadly so are daily deaths of infants and children by guns.  Prognosis for the nation is guarded at best.

    Building a better America with activism, cooperation, ingenuity and snacks.
