Stein Knows What's Right

I agree almost always with Ben Stein. He is always very interesting to read and listen to. Today Ben does not disappoint with this piece. Go and read about a gift from his father-in-law, but I found this the most profound:
I have relatives and friends who get out of bed every morning and do an hour of exercise to keep them fit. I don't do that. My exercise is that I get out of bed and hit my knees and thank God for waking up in America, where I live in peace and freedom, no Gestapo chasing me, no KGB putting me in the Gulag, no Hamas blowing me up. All thanks to men like Col. Denman and the heroism he showed capturing this Luger.
