I was directed through Customs when I landed at Detroit; the inspector there asked me why I was flying to Canton. It was odd to me to be able to answer, without irony, "Patriotism." At his prompting I explained that I was coming to volunteer for the Kerry campaign, that my country is broken and I am doing everything I can to help fix it. We didn't discuss how he was planning to vote, but he certainly seemed to respect what I am doing.
