The American ostrich

Frank Rich offers another extraordinary column on the things that embittered Americans don't want to think about. While it's true that most Americans would rather avoid the horrible truth (most of us would rather avert ourselves from unsettling thoughts, and be distracted by things less troubling), Rich feels that even if the media presented us with the truth, as Errol Morris does in his new documentary, we wouldn't want to hear it.
