JUM*- 16. W74 Could We Want More? Otherwise. You may not believe this but t!»ere is a lot we can be thankful for. a gob of gowi ur- rouiiding us. consolations galore. The feeling of gloom and doom, of crisis and chaos, can overcome you. throw you off balance, fill your news-con- .fused brain with minus signs. · But there are plus signs, all sorts oi indicators thai things 'aren't as bad as they seem. How. for instance, can you ·'stop a country that developed · the- left-turn arrow'.' ! ; The way to get the U.S. ! - moving again, of course, is to : ", turn out more arrows. i : How -.-an we possibly lose ; ' our place on the world's stage · when we have the resources to i ·". transform the Mark Spit/es. ';· Joe Namaths and Muhammad '. Alls into actors? 9.' AND LOOK at our various i freedoms. We've got the freedom to ignore the tacos drive- ins if we wish: to shinny up telephone poles w i t h o u t our britches on; to say obscene things to the umpires; to eat, drink and smoke all sorts of weird concoctions t h a t our Big Daddy Government says are going to do us in; to call relatives and reverse the charges: to retire to restrooms during commercials; to speculate openly about what happened to Liz and Richard; to forget the names of the last astronauts we sent up \ yonder. ··· It's still a free country even though the price of freedom /ffas been inflated as badly as f everything else. ·,;/U's a country that's getting /bigger by the day, even though we're weighed down with a hundred different diet books a month. We've still got a strong Constitution, even though we're out of breath running for the school buses. We're still so patriotic that w e c a n ' t t u r n o u t e n o u g h American flags, so we get some of them made in Japan. It's a country t h a t never gives up in a fight, and if you don't believe it look down into the Grand Canyon. We've still got some I n d i a n s trapped down there. WE HAVE an abundance of everything, including advice. Men fly all over the country to tell us we might to keep our feet on the ground. And then they try to nut all of us, from Sammy Davis on up, in high heel shoes. We've got a m a g n i f i c e n t country here with a lot of signs of the old stick-to-it spirit, and we stick some of them on our bi'Tipers. others on the sides of barns, others on the walis of our birth control clinics: "Don't Litter." And versatility. We have leading politicians imperson- a t i n g our comedians, other politicians entering the ministry, and ministers entering politics, and prisoners becoming authors, and authors becoming prisoners, and women who want to be like men, and men being turned into women, and many adults who act like children. Who could ask far anything more? In fact, who would wact to? Tom Fesperman Foreclosure May Be Awkward , K .
