Making a home out of local materials seems like a lost art.

Abraham Lincoln destroyed the Eastern myth of log cabin trash. Who will do the same for trailer trash?

Lincoln was living in the age of the self-made man.

William Jefferson Clinton.

Even his names aspires to flee the trailer park.

Doesn't the Clinton Library sort of look like a giant trailer on stilts, as if the crick might rise next time it rains?

Clinton didn't do it for you?

I'd like to second that thanks, Ann, that Michael put out there earlier this morning.

I went for a walk around my neighborhood today and passed 76 houses with at least one American flag on their property. My step was lighter, and I found myself walking further than I usually do because I was proud of my neighborhood and as ever, proud to be an American.
