For those of you who missed this piece on last Sunday's 60 Minutes, it provides a great escape from the continuing drum noise of reporting on Trump's behavior, and the detritus he leaves in his wake. It is a story about a refugee family that left Nigeria, and took up residence in the cheapest real estate and lower economic level of Athens, Greece. The family made the best of their new life, and produced a son who has turned into the "best basketball player in today's NBA". He IS the best, and you should see and hear this TV piece of journalism. The biggest challenge fans have is to learn how to pronounce his name - give it a try:
Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
- Adlai Stevenson
