So while we are celebrating our super-long weekend waving our flags, enjoying the fireworks and praising America and American excpetionalism, we should take a long look in the mirror. What we are celebrating may be the America we knew, not the one that exists today. If you don't like what you see, then it is past time to think anew the meaning of patriotism.

The Club Car opened its doors a few months ago in Mamaroneck NY. The restaurant has received rave reviews. But for me, it is the restoration of the magnificent 1888 Romanesque building that steals the show.
