6. No one is whining, Graham.

 

Lamenting is different than whining.

I've visited the city about dozen times in my life - the first time in 1975. It is a completely different place now.

"Like our security, the more the better."

Your statment reminds me of the Ben Franklin quote:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

And, I'm a History nut, not an Arbor nut, so I could give a rat's butt about the Cherry Blossoms.
