What is an American?

Editors Note: Normally MNP refrains from posting such a pro-American sentiments layed out in this manner- conspiracies aside, you gotta respect this Editorial from an Australian dentist!

(this is in response to an ad in a Pakistani newspaper offering cash reward for killing an ‘American’)

An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.

The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America.

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

What is Walkable Urbanism?

walkableurbanismmnp.jpg

Walkable urbanism is the development approach that creates pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use and mixed-income places. These places can either be regional-serving (anchored by regionally important employment, cultural and civic institutions, retail and urban entertainment as well as residential) or local-serving (residential with local-serving commercial). Both places benefit tremendously by being transit-oriented.

What is a "query letter"?

tootsierollpopmnp.png

A query letter is a letter that briefly describes your project and that asks the recipient if he or she is interested in seeing the whole project. Sometimes a query letter may be accompanied by an excerpt from the manuscriptaone page of a picture-book story, or ten pages from a novel, for example. The publisher’s submission guidelines will tell you exactly what to send.

The trick to writing a good query letter is to get the right balance between overview and details. You want to give the reader enough to understand the project and get interested in it, but not so much that they get bored or distracted by minor issues. Think of it as writing a book report on your own book, or as a movie trailer. Obviously, a query letter should also be professional, gracious, and no more than one page long.
