No mingling.

Can I just say? Isn't America's Interstate System just the greatest thing? I mean, really. We can travel quickly throughout our vast country, by car or motorcycle or even by foot, so very easily.

There was a great piece in the New Yorker last year about traveling across Siberia.

Which was not such an easy task. It took six weeks, with no rest stops or diners or service stations. Sometimes the roads themselves were dicey.

This is what makes us such a great country. Thank you, President Eisenhower and Congress for building our Interstate Highways! I mean, really. I can travel by highway from where I live to anywhere in the US. No "Papers please." (Well, maybe Arizona.) (And not Hawaii, by car.)

This freedom is what we are all about. This is what makes us so unusual in the world.

Also? It is America. Speak what ever damn language you want.

Don't get me started.
