The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher standard.
~ George McGovern
When Russell Means died the day after George McGovern (Oct 21 & 22, 2012), I'm pretty sure it was the only time two South Dakotans led The New York Times obituaries.
I have admired Senator McGovern since I was a kid. The best of the best.
Also, it is too frigging hot.
