    Wonderful. Hitch and I are near-contemporaries, and we both came to the US about the same time (although in very different circumstances). I very much agree with the point that he and Laurie Taylor make in the first segment: over the last 30 years, America has been transformed from an optimistic, open, friendly, inclusive society into a more pinched, suspicious, mean-spirited one. It’s sad.

    We’ve turned into a collective Dick Cheney.
