Sign Language

With regard to the 'patriotic' signs on Mr. Moroun's trucks, all I can do is quote Samuel Johnson: "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments on the sign, but Mr. Moroun would be much more patriotic if he would stop wasting U.S. taxpayers' money with his frivolous lawsuits and step aside and let DRIC go forward.

AS it is, the signs smack to me of nothing more than a public relations ploy. The true patriot does not parade his ersatz patriotism; as the Bible says, When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them (Matthew 6.5).
