Do you feel more patriotic this Fourth of July in light of the events of Sept. 11?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 30, 2002
“No. America needs to take responsibility for certain situations it has contributed to globally. Part of the Sept. 11 thing was evening that score.”
“Yeah, I think so. It seems like the country has come together since Sept. 11.”
“I’d have to say I feel a little bit less patriotic than usual this Fourth. It began with the election and then our government’s response to the Sept. 11 occurrence.”
“I don’t feel more patriotic. … Stuff like that happens in other places all the time. It’s kind of turned into a marketing thing.”
