Has Kayla ever been out of the country? Say to Africa? Or Mexico? Or anywhere?


I’ve been reading the Sunday papers and on the front page of The Gainesville Sun was part of a series on how divided America is and why.

Reading a very negative quote, on the day before the Fourth of July, by a naive, relatively young woman named Kayla Coleman got me a bit riled up.

She was asked if America is great. Is America a great country?

“I don’t think it’s great at all. There’s a lot of disturbance and distress with the American people.”

Are people starving? Are armies bombing your neighborhood?

My bet is that Kayla has plenty to eat, a nice place to live, and a decent salary.

But, no, America is still hell on earth.
