A Shining City On The Hill, Or…?

Ben Stein has a masterful column titled “A City on a Hill, or a Looting Opportunity” in today’s New York Times Business section.

Stein’s perspective is that we’re really screwing up a good thing – this place called America – as he asks “Is this America, where far too many of the rich endlessly loot their stockholders and kick the employees in the teeth, the America that our soldiers in Ramadi and Kirkuk and Anbar Province and Afghanistan are fighting for?”

The only thing that might have made Stein’s column today any better was for it to have run on July 4th.
