AMERICA THE BOOTIFUL

As our Tel Aviv to Newark plane landed at 4: 55am, a small group in the back of the plane started singing "America The Beautiful"--which was met with groans and eyerolls from the row I was in and hissing-shushing from the Hassidim seated near the Patriots. The shushes were met with a loud little speech about how this land blah blah four wars blah blah freedom blah blah from a man of a certain age. Patriotism can be so fucking embarrassing.

Nonetheless, I am home.
