Once upon a time I lived in England while doing duty as an exchange Officer with the Royal Navy. Every week I'd listen to, and be questioned about Alistair Cooke's Letter from America.
Bigwig has picked a recent letter that is worth spreading around. It's about Amreicas' unique relationship with Israel, titled American Policy has One Aim. I still correspond regularly with a good friend from my days On Her Majesty's Service, but reading this makes me miss the time I spent talking with all of my friends about our country.
