Did the U.S. lose some States?
There are many challenges facing our Nation these days. We see divisiveness all around us. While dining out recently I thought that maybe these United States had become less "united."
I was startled by the listings under "Imported" on the restaurant's beverage menu. Blue Moon? That's from the Coors Brewing Company in Golden, Colorado. Sam Adams and Sam Adams Lite? Those are brewed by the Boston Beer Company in Boston, Massachusetts. After checking both my atlas and CNN, I was relieved to find no evidence of any coup or civil war that might have divided the Country. Indeed both Colorado and Massachusetts are still part of the United States, still domestic.
