Why I Love HerA tribute to the USA by John Wayne.
peggy Jo .
The AmericansThe biggest name in Canadian broadcast journalism was Gordon Sinclair. On June 5th, 1973, he woke up and turned on his television in Toronto. The United States had just pulled out of Vietnam, which had ended in a stalemate, a war fought daily on television, radio and in the press. Our economy was in trouble with worldwide sell-offs of American investments. The war had also divided the American people and it seemed like everybody was lambasting our country.
On that day in Toronto, Sinclair wrote and delivered the famous commentary, now called The Americans. It quickly became popular in the U.S. and a record company using a Canadian disk jockey, Byron McGregor as the voice, put "The Americans" to music. The royalties were given to the Red Cross. (Click on the link at the bottom of this article to hear the recording from 1973)
This commentary, which you are about to hear , is nearly 30 years old and for obvious reasons has been making its way around e-mail chains and the internet. While many of the references in the editorial have changed over the past 30 years, the spirit and passion are more relevant than ever. Gordon Sinclair died in 1984. One of his legacies is The Americans, from 1973: Here is the recording

42. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you "squeeze" for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie. They are: Monday = Blue, Tuesday = Green, Thursday = Red Friday = White and Saturday = Yellow. So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.
