Reflecting on this evening's events. it occurred to me that I live quite close to the city of Decatur, GA, named for Stephen Decatur (I once visited his former house in Washington, D.C. - it's now a textile museum, IIRC), who's now rightly famous for the toast
Our Country! In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right; but right or wrong, our country!
I quite like that. Definitely prefer it to the modern bowdlerism.
