To Be a Cicada On a Shoulder: Warm Fuzzy Americana

There’s something remarkably American about one scene in particular at the dedication of the WWII Memorial today. Right after the ceremony, George W. Bush was chatting with Bill Clinton and his dad. Clkinton must have said something silly or sarcastic. Suddenly you saw George H. W. hit him lightly, but with both hands, laughing, like they were all old friends. (This, I think is right before.)

I happen to unforgiving when it comes to campaigns and elections and remain annoyed at both George Bush 41 and Bob Dole for letting Clinton win. But you gotta love a country where you can see a scene like that.
