Rod Watson's Sept. 13 column filled me with disgust. He thinks Americans aren't interested or involved enough in world affairs. That's ridiculous. If he can name a country that takes in more immigrants, sends more foreign aid and assists more during times of natural disaster, I'd like him to name that country.
The fact is, the United States of America is the most generous nation on earth. The "blame America first" mentality is one reason the enemies of our country think actions like those of Sept. 11 will be successful. We have a great country filled with great people, and we should be proud of who we are and what we stand for.
