What Can I Say?

From Tom Friedman's New York Timesop-ed today:
I want to take time on this Thanksgiving to thank God I live in a country where, despite so much rampant selfishness, the public schools still manage to produce young men and women ready to voluntarily risk their lives in places like Iraq and Afghanistan to spread the opportunity of freedom and to protect my own. And I want to thank them for doing this, even though on so many days in so many ways we really don't deserve them.
I'd catalogue the many fallacies in that paragraph, but it's 10 a.m. CST and I wouldn't want to miss turkey dinner, which will begin in seven hours.
