This Grant Wood painting makes me feel patriotic.   As I have often said, I love my country but I fear my government.  For me, patriotism is about the land you love, a way of life and an extended family of people who share it.

By the way, this is a real place.  My wife grew up on a farm just over the horizon in the painting about six or eight miles away.

I do respect folks anthems. I try to be ah good citizen.  When ah wanna get out the house, I go to the Race track. At 12noon they play the National Anthem.  Not ah soul stands.  It seems I am the only black DOTISH Fool who stands.   Them White look at me as if I am crazy.
