What's In a Name?

by Mike Drucker

He knew why they laughed at him: he was a patriot. Sure, it wasn't popular to love your country. But, goddammit, he did. And to have a business whose name praised the only country in the world where you can live your dreams, well, that was looked down upon by certain folks. So when people walked by and giggled and pointed and laughed at the name of his bar, he didn't care. He loved America and he loved his bar, a little place where people could relax and love their country, a little placed called "The Glory Hole."
