Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
I decided to join my new homeland.
I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
As I'm preparing for my short trip to Poland, I'm buying small gifts for people I'll be visiting. Most gifts are alcoholic beverages, of course. People I'm going to visit have taken full advantage of capitalism and are doing much better, in many cases, than I do. But a bottle of good Kentucky or Tennessee Bourbon will be appreciated even by Poland's nouvo riche.
I'm also reading
that the State Department is offering a series of suggestions for Americans traveling abroad on how they can help improve America's battered international image.
So to follow my government in lock step, I've purchased this
T-shirt so I can show Europeans that I'm really taking seriously the advise of my own government.
