A few reasons why we’re exceptional

Yes, we’re exceptional

OK, folks, take a look at the above-linked article, and try to imagine just how we could have landed so far off the curves by chance.  My psychologist/researcher/statistician wife would likely have “thrown us out” as an outlier, had this been her research.  This information represents the kind of belief system that I am intent on passing to my kids.  It seems like I have not been alone, at least for the last couple of  hundred years.  Perhaps I am wrong (I don’t think I am), but this entire U.S. phenomenon has seemingly been under attack for quite some time, from the inside as well as the outside.  This is quite distressing.

For my part, I will be passing our “exceptionalism” along the blood line, and happily so.

Go love your kids!
