The look of the country

I watched the old Paul Newman classic, Hud, the other night. And there's a scene where Melvyn Douglas tells his Grandson:
"Lonnie, little by little the look of the country changes because of the men we admire."
There's a lot that can be said about the people we choose to elevate in America. But I figure more writing won't make the point any better.

Although, for some reason, this line from President Elect Obama got me thinking along the same lines. Have a nice weekend.

How many honest men you know? You take the sinners away from the saints, you're lucky to end up with Abraham Lincoln.
