Whining for a reason

Re: ''Stop your whining'' (PostBag, April 24). 

During the worst of America's political turmoil resulting from the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights movement, ultra right-wingers began displaying bumper stickers reading: ''America _ love it or leave it!''.

The meaning, of course, was clear. If you disliked racism or killing Commies, then get the hell out. Later, although in fewer numbers, another bumper sticker appeared: ''America _ love it and make it better yet''. There was something humane, thoughtful and decent about this sticker. It would apply well to Thailand.
