We can connect some dots from the tear down and rebuilding of Los Angeles to the dismantling and renovation of America itself.
Changes in American society are occurring constantly.
One quick example is the computerization of friendship.
I don't remember public debates on this total change of social lifestyle.
If there had been a discussion, I imagine many of us would have said, "fuhgettaboutit", or as they used to say in the prehistoric Old Country, "feh" on that".
Now back to the July 4th game of questions.
Without putting too paranoid a spin on it, is America being destroyed and re-imagined by a handful of so-called "patriots" while the masses celebrate July 4th with beer and barbeque?
In what ways can we see this?
To reiterate, we in Los Angeles can see that we are enduring a marathon construction season. There are orange road work cones and signs everywhere.
