Rou, please keep holding the mirror. We obviously need it.
That's fine for you but it's not for me. I read that article well before Rou posted it and I was disgusted by it. But am I embarrassed on behalf of this loser in Arkansas? Nope. My impression is that the words Rou chooses paint all Americans with a broad brush. This isn't the first time she has done it either--it's been going on at least since I joined the board 10 years ago.
