City found real American way The Daily Planet received a copy of this letter addressed to the City Council and the Chamber of Commerce:

I am so proud of my city standing up in the face of the lockstep jingoistic insanity going on in this country. I feel glad that Berkeley is so far ahead of its time, looking so very many years into the future, when the rest of humanity catches up (if it survives) and learns that acting righteous and keeping one's boot on the neck of those born by some chance in another place isn't what gets us the most security. 

In Truth, Justice -- and the real American Way.
