I am not a Peggy Noonan fan, got that? And I know most people linking her article on what's right with our country are doing so because she lists weblogging as one of the great things about this country. But there are many things to be thankful for.

Working pride. We have many people in this country who take pride in their work and aren't paid near enough for the services they render (in stark opposition to virtually every CEO).

Humor, research, and the web. Check.

Freedom. We are free. It's important. We shouldn't underestimate it's value.

Diversity. Scholars say you can't understand American history without understanding immigration. Our diversity really is a wonderful resource.

Democracy (maybe not technicially - Republic - but basically). The worst form of government except for every other one.

We explained the 4th to the kids as 'America's Birthday'. Happy Birthday, America.

(I'd love for you to add to this list in the comments. Maybe I should post this on MeFi. Nah, too crazy.)
