America’s culture is unuiqe only in the sense that it is extremely diverse, a rope of many strands, and completely the opposite of the Hebrew Culture of the Old Testament, which was ethnically, genetically, and linguistically homogenous. If you are implicitly suggesting that immigration somehow is a threat to American culture (and you may not be, but the cultural reference and the idea of preservation made me think you were thinking about it), I would say that immigration is at the core of American culture and will continue to be so. Whether you were going there or not, there are a lot of strange people out there who try to frame immigration discussions in terms of protecting our culture , as if we were Estonians or something. I do find in the Bible (or at least parts of it) Good News about redemption. I was reacting to the teaser headline that suggested that there might be something in the article that guides us on the formation of immigration policy. There isn’t.
It’s hard to bet against Tiger, but he was mssiing quite a few short putts on the practice green yesterday. If that keeps happening, it’s going to be tough for him to pull it out. I think Rory is going to come on strong and give it a run, and I’ll always pull for Bubba.
