Save the United

The SS United States is docked down on the Delaware River, Philadelphia. It was built in 1952 as a luxury liner and still retains the record for the fastest, regular service crossing of the Atlantic Ocean.

It caught my eye the other day because it has a huge banner across the bow that reads ‘’ My immediate reaction was: “Right On!”

Just to be clear: my reaction wasn’t a misplaced-myopic-nostalgic-for-the-past type of “Right On.”

Quite the opposite. Mine was an energized, optimistic “Right On!” exclamation; ever hopeful about the future of our truly representative democracy and a common sense approach to guns.

Is that so much to ask?
